Ampitheatre for RIBA Ideas Competition

Ampitheatre for RIBA Ideas Competition

Adams+Collingwood where asked to design an innovation use for existing gasholder base’ around the UK.

At present, park concerts and theatre performances in the UK are restricted to a very short summer season. Converting old gasholder base’ into combined amphitheatre / auditorium and public park would be in the spirit of the UK’s traditional Victorian park band stands, with the added benefit of being in use all year, and encouraging arts and culture into all regions of the UK.
