2011 8th OISTAT Theatre Architecture Competition

2011 8th OISTAT Theatre Architecture Competition

Most spaces for the performing arts (drama, music theatre, dance, concerts and other forms) are housed in specialized buildings, built for the purpose.

While there will always be a need for these buildings, there is increasing interest amongst theatre practitioners in the use of existing buildings and settings, which are not purpose built theatres, to present productions. These settings, sometimes known as ‘found space’, can often provide a unique atmosphere, which resonates with a particular production or style of presentation, in a way that may not be possible in a conventional theatre.

More information can be found on the competition’s official website. Seen at Death by Architecture.
