Event description

Description

Join the RIBA South East London Architect's Group on this exclusive building tour, lead by the architects who designed the building, Haworth Tompkins Architects.

The Bridge Theatre is London's first commercial theatre of scale for 80 years. Using innovative prefabrication techniques, the 900-1000 seat flexible auditorium is a collaboration between the architects, specialist manufacturer Tait Stage Technologies and client, London Theatre Company.

The 'as found' site comprised a shell and core, designed without a final use being established. It was a big challenge to fit a theatre in this existing space under a housing development, with minimal access to the site. The design had to work hard to incorporate existing columns coming down in locations which were not ideal.

The auditorium is ground-breaking both in design and construction, and in theatrical staging flexibility.
