The winner of an RIBA competition to design a transportable event space for Yorkshire Forward Regional Development Agency.
The Arbour was designed to provide an event space for an audience of 200 seated people and accommodate conferences, lectures, workshops, meetings, meals, debates, gigs, exhibitions and film screenings throughout the Yorkshire region.
The Arbour is an innovative demountable structure that utilises lightweight fabrics to create a building with an appearance not normally associated with tensile structures.
Designed in collaboration with Jonathan Rennie. Tensile engineers: Tensarc. This project is currently on hold.
