"Form embodies the tension and balance, rhythm and form, drama and pause enacted within."

Performance is about tension and balance, rhythm and melody, light and shadow, drama and poise... A Performing Arts complex should embody these things within its very form, its’ architecture and landscape, expressing the excitement and wonder held within. Building forms reflecting the significant context of the site. A grouping of buildings, larger and smaller, held together in a dance. Twisting and arching round the mound on which they sit, giant trees in the courtyard anchoring them to the site. Courtyards shaped with structure and rhythm, echoing the programme of their surrounding buildings. Seating terraces stepping down to an outdoor performance space, including an enlarged pond brought into the feet of the terraces and a ‘floating stage’ in front of a mighty Kahikatea stand - making for a spectacular performance venue on a summer evening.

This project designed in collaboration with Jasmax.
