Design

The new theatre will be of a high-quality design that is sympathetic to the existing original architectural intent of QPAC, yet contributes as a distinct structure for the precinct.
 

In January 2019, the Queensland Government announced the five shortlisted Principal Design Consultants following a call for Expressions of Interest (EOI) late last year. The shortlisted teams comprise a mix of leading local, national and international expertise and are listed below:

Design teams participated in a six week competitive design tender process to prepare initial concept designs for the new theatre. This period has now closed.

Design of the new theatre will be guided by the Conservation Management Plan, commissioned by Arts Queensland and developed by heritage consultants in 2017.

An independent expert panel, with expertise in heritage, design, architecture, and theatre operation, will provide advice on the design and construction of the new theatre.

The Principal Design Consultant and concept design will be announced mid 2019.
