This week I attended the International Theatre Engineering and Architecture Conference (ITEAC), where the world of theatre building was focused in London. My favourite session, called 'Theatre on the move', considered moving, temporary and semi-permanent theatres, and included presentations by theatre practitioners and architects. I found that projects by theatre practitioners were more whimsical compared to designs by architects. Presentations included Roundabout by studio 360 (above), The Shed at the National Theatre by Haworth Tompkins and Origen Cultural Festival by NUSSLI Temporary Structures (below).
The session provided plenty of food for thought for how we conceptualise our theatre projects, most notably Colston Hall.
