Public vote winner for cultural building of the year: 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.
