Arts and Culture
Arup plays a central role in the design and development of many of the world’s favourite cultural institutions.
A country’s arts venues are where it shares its most important ideas. As places they allow incredible performances to stimulate every sense. And as designs they are often works of art, inspiring and encouraging the audiences they serve.
To achieve a great design, clients need a partner who understands the challenges and parallel objectives of these projects. Arup’s collaborative ethos enables us to realise these complex goals. Our breadth of disciplines and collaborative ‘Total Architecture’ philosophy means we value and share the creative vision that drives cultural projects.
Arup has played a defining role in the development and design of some of the world’s favourite cultural buildings. From our work realizing the Sydney Opera House, the Centre Pompidou to our more recent work like the San Francisco MOMA or the Pinewood film studios extension, we understand what drives successful cultural projects. We work as partners to our clients, always approaching projects with insights into how to serve their needs and the needs of their audiences. We’re also able to help them understand how a project will fit into the wider urban landscape of transport systems, retail, public and private spaces.
