This NLA breakfast talk will look at some of the capital’s most exciting current cultural projects and hear from the architects involved about their planning and design.
National Youth Theatre – Lynch Architects
This project will provide the National Youth Theatre with new and improved accommodation as well as making their presence on the site more visible and accessible to the public. A number of existing artisanal workshops and studios will be re-housed in new or refurbished accommodation.
Rambert Dance Company – Allies and Morrison
This project creates a new home for Rambert - a new building for making dance on London's South Bank. Light-filled dance studios, changing rooms and offices are raised above a generous ground floor, allowing touring truck access at the rear and a welcoming entrance space with archive and public reading room below. The sectional arrangement exploits the mix of single and double-height spaces, allowing permeability and views between them. A central courtyard optimises natural light and ventilation, while also acting as a social focus for the life of the building.
National Theatre masterplan – Haworth Tompkins
The National Theatre wishes to build on its current success to increase the popularity and visibility of the building, to expand participation and education activities, to engage more closely with the neighbourhood and to make the theatre more sustainable. Haworth Tompkins was approached by the National Theatre to help it develop a comprehensive master plan for improving and extending their building on the South Bank.
