Using the circumference of the Amphitheatre circular form to connect us to a picturesque moment left somehow still intact by the Romans since they constructed it somewhere between 27 BC and 68 AD.


The project was designed to offer new experiences of the Amphitheatre through dialogue with it’s traditional form and the timeline of it’s weathering.

We did this by taking the Victorian hand drawn plans and transposing them into 3D CAD drawings which we could work with to produce the stage and 8,000 capacity event space for various artists. We also worked around the stones and objects in listed positions when designing the stage footing as to only enhance the story of the Roman structure rather than change it.
