The Shed, a red theater by Haworth Tompkins in London

Along the Thames, beside the National Theatre built on the South Bank by Denys Lasdun in the 1970s, the local firm of Graham Haworth and Steve Tompkins has built a temporary auditorium called ‘The Shed’. The bold geometry in concrete of Lasdun’s work is assimilated by the new building, executed in recycled wood painted a bright red and with four towers rising at the corners. With natural ventilation and capacity for 225 people, the pavilion will stage theatrical productions while the National Theatre undergoes renovation and enlargement, a project also commissioned to Haworth Tompkins and scheduled for completion in 2014.
