The Tricycle Theatre is delighted to announce that Ian Ritchie Architects has been appointed to lead the £5million capital project to transform the venue.
Indhu Rubasingham, Artistic Director has said “The capital project is an incredible opportunity for the Tricycle and I am thrilled we’ll be working with an architect with the experience, prestige and vision that Ian Ritchie has. Jonathan Levy, Chairman has said “The Tricycle Board of Trustees are delighted that Ian Ritchie has been appointed to lead the project. Ian’s contribution to architecture in the cultural sector and beyond ensures he brings a huge amount of knowledge to the project and it is a great privilege for the Tricycle to be working with him.”
The capital project, to take place in 2015, will place young people at the heart of the theatre and transform the visitor experience, as well as modernising the theatre auditorium (untouched since 1987), renovating front-of-house, and increasing the organisation’s economic sustainability.
