Note(s)O’Donnell and Tuomey have been awarded the RIAI Gold Medal (2010-2012) for this theatre which replaced a substandard structure from the 1960s. It was built following an open architectural competition in May 2003 and eight years of briefing, design, fund-raising, demolition and construction. This medal is awarded several years after completion, so that the success of the building can be confirmed by the passage of time. The architectural design was developed in response to the urban and landscape conditions of an irregular sloping site between Belfast’s brick streetscape and the parkland of the Lagan.
