Phoenix Central Park
by Durbach Block Jaggers Architects and John Wardle Architects

Martin Mischkulnig

Phoenix Central Park is a gallery and performance space designed by Durbach Block Jaggers Architects and John Wardle Architects.

The spaces are intended to work together, to have visual arts interwoven with the performing arts.

John Wardle Architects designed the gallery in the east wing and Durbach Block Jaggers has designed the performance space. The components are linked centrally by a courtyard and garden.

A continuous external skin of brickwork encloses everything – a skin that was designed by both architects working together.

This project has been longlisted in the cultural building category of Dezeen Awards 2020.
