Liminal Architecture is partnering with WOHA and Arup Acoustics and Theatre on a new cultural and performance development for the University of Tasmania. Planned for the corner of Campbell and Collins Streets in Hobart, the building will envelope the existing Theater Royal and create a backdrop to the historic Hedberg Garage.
So far only one image of the schematic design has been released, revealing a porous structure that will, as the architect's describe, "evoke a sense of the activities happening within."
"We are very excited with the way the design is progressing. Presently early works on the site are being undertaken so that findings of the archaeological investigation can help influence aspects of the design, which will allow for a more authentic approach to the heritage discoveries," says Liminal.
The official design will be unveiled later this year. The project is being delivered by the University of Tasmania, along with the Commonwealth and Tasmanian governments.
