It reflects a natural place of convergence rather than a formal auditorium, which enhances its function as a social and cultural space as well as an event destination. 

Designed to embrace the natural curve of the amphitheatre, a canopy - symbolising the lake system that originally occupied the site - provides shade cover during the day. A spectacular lighting installation on the underside of the canopy will bring the area to life.
