Alban Bassuet

Alban Bassuet is an internationally recognized planner, designer and acoustician for the arts and culture built environment. Addressing the need for informal and affordable performance environments, he uses natural settings and found spaces to create ephemeral venues for mid-size audiences. Since 1999 he has designed such world-class performance spaces as the new Greek National Opera House, Le Rosey Concert Hall in Switzerland and the Taipei Asian Pop Music Center. He also collaborates with artists such as James Turrell, Ai Wei Wei, Philip Glass, Mark di Suvero, Patrick Dougherty and Stephen Vitiello on mixed-media art installations. More recently Bassuet led the design and was director of the Tippet Rise Art Center in Montana, recognized by Time magazine as “one of the world’s 100 greatest places to visit.”
