The Portable Theatre and Meeting Space
is a nomadic structure for artists and
the public designed to collect, exchange
and spread ideas, as well as information,
around the world. It will reach the attention
of audiences from various social and cultural
backgrounds, making art and information
more readily accessible.
The mobile structure has been designed
to accommodate changes as it travels.
Its flexibility will allow it to adapt
to different locations and cultural contexts.
Formed of six independent modules, it
can be shaped according to the needs of
local communities, audiences and collaborators

Back in London, when not traveling, the
modules can be installed independently

cultural pockets around the city where

will bring back the flavour and experiences
of their journeys, telling stories and
generally spreading the word.
The internal layouts of the Portable
Theatre and Meeting Space comprise lightweight
modular partitions and flexible furniture
and fittings to accommodate multiple uses
within. It is designed to be lightweight
and easily demountable to facilitate transport
