The Hub

We were shortlisted for this competition to create a central pavilion that would mark the convergence of several key routes at the centre of Workington. We designed a pavilion theatre that changes throughout the day and night. During the day it is to be used by shoppers as a place to meet and have a cup of tea. Interactive lighting and mirrors create panels that children can play with.

In the afternoon, the artificial lighting changes as projections on the back screen play behind buskers or serve as an exhibition screen. In the evening, the space is transformed as a theatrical space where bands play or theatre groups can perform.
