The brief for this 1992 competition called for a
building that could be built in phases - two
performance spaces for 300 and 100 people
respectively, offices, a cafe and lobby areas
comprised phase one, with a historical book
collection and workshops and artist temporary
accommodation forming two separable phases.
The proposal creates two internal 'streets' set
at angles generated by the surroundings, off
of which the various parts are arranged.
