NTU Architecture Subject Group

LIVE! Performing Arts Centre, Derby, UK

The LIVE! Performing Arts Centre is a feature building located in Derby City Centre, introducing a powerful cultural presence, and creating a new dynamic urban gathering place for the city to promote and exhibit the performing arts. The project will aim to improve the creative and cultural opportunities for the residents of Derby as well as add to the local economic activity and lead to developments in the surrounding areas.

The undulating ETFE grid-shell covering the building provides lighting during the night, emphasising the arts centre within the community and visitors of Derby, and providing acoustic benefits. Research into speech intelligibility and acoustic
comfort aided the reduction of noise pollution within the auditoriums.
