RIBA Award winner, 19 May 2011

The centre for carnival arts is a bold attempt to recreate the sense of an arts community that has developed in an ad-hoc way over a period of time. The site planning is simple and straightforward, being conceived as a group of buildings focused around a yard. It is the antithesis of the Arts Centre.

Each building has a different character in both form and expression and, while there is some consistency in the use of materials, there is a clever mismatch in how these are expressed, creating a feeling of using what was to hand.

This loose-fit detailing allows the spaces to be inhabited in a relaxed yet creative way that is entirely appropriate to the spirit of Carnival.
