Description

This Design and Development Guide is an essential book for those who are involved in the initiation, planning, design and building of facilities for the various performing arts. Part one of this guide provides the background information about the organisation of the performing arts, the prevailing issues, the client and various building types. In the second part, the author deals with the components of design and development, identifying the roles of the client, advisors and consultants, the stages to be achieved, including clients proposal feasibility, the process of briefing, design and building and eventually hand-over and opening night, with a consideration of the building use.

Studies include the assessment of demand, site requirements, initial brief, building design and financial viability. Information requirements, as design standards, for the auditorium and platform/stage, and the support facilities, are included. Separate studies focus on the adaptation of existing buildings and provision for children and young persons.
