The MAC is an award winning building that resulted from an international open design competition in association with the RIBA. Hackett/Hall/ McKnight’s design creates foyers that “recall the tight streetscape of the neighbourhood - a com- pressed urban environment characterised by top-light”. A 32m high illuminated ‘lantern’ forms a ‘beacon for the arts’ within the Cathedral Quarter.

The £17.9mmulti-purpose facility opened in April 2012 with theatre and rehearsal spaces, a dance studio, art galleries and cafe/ bar area. The building has since won an RIBA National Award and was nominated for the European Union Prize for Contemporary Architecture - Mies van der Rohe Award.

Call in throughout the weekend or join one of two exclusive guided tours with architect Mark Hackett who will explain the considerations involved in designing a multi purpose arts building such as the MAC.
