Symbol Mark

Blue whirls and three red poles. Initials of P and C from Patio Chiryu are designed to look like two halls with the patio and the corridors connecting the halls.

Foundation Stone

The hall represents the patio for the citizens of Chiryu City and gives an image of an expanding circle of culture. Furthermore, the letter “C” represents “Culture”, “Challenge,” and “Chiryu,” while “P” represents “Performance,” “Pleasure,” and “Patio,” forming them three poles describing the region of Mikawa (three rivers).

The foundation stone is placed on the floor of the entrance hall as an etched copper plate with approximately ø750 embedded in a 900 : 900 mm slab of marble. The copper plate has a round design, and it represents “direction,” “constellation,” and “date” each from the outer circle.

Those curving words in the foundation stone represent meaningful terms: “direction” means “space,” while “constellation” means “outer space,” and “date” means “time.” In other words, it refers to the motto, “Let’s put time and space such as the words of space, outer space, and time, together into one, or create a new culture and art beyond time and space as the foundation of the CHIRYU PUBLIC THEATER/PATIO CHIRYU,” and an axiomatic figure of alchemy and the mark of Patio Chiryu are placed at the center.
