RAM AR Future Projects Commendation

“A rich programme has been effortlessly incorporated into a tricky heritage context”

iRAL are delighted to have received a commendation for the Royal Academy of Music at the AR Future Projects Awards in MIPIM on 15th March.

This design changes the shape of the Royal Academy of Music’s existing 1970’s fan-shaped theatre, increases capacity by 40% and installs for the first time a stage wing and fly tower. The new student and public recital hall above the theatre’s new auditorium holds 100 and is wrapped in pre-patinated copper, replacing an unsightly existing roofscape.
