AUCKLAND CITY // NEW ZEALAND
A multi-purpose hall for the Institute of Technology in Auckland, the Theatre was designed as a functional lecture hall facility for its students and conference hall for hire during the day and as both a private and public place for evening concert, musical, fashion-show and theatre.
The complex is inserted into the AIT campus context with a upper level access to exhibition and foyer space. A lower main entrance foyer is accessed from a large open space with public drop off and roofed porte cochere. Inside woven textured side panels absorb sound and provide cultural context.
