The Royal Festival Hall by Allies and Morrison

Southbank Centre, London

The Royal Festival Hall, designed by Leslie Martin and Peter Moro, was the centrepiece of the 1951 Festival of Britain. The iconic building has been transformed by refocusing the original design ideas while making significant changes. In the auditorium, the acoustics, audience comfort and production flexibility have been improved. Foyer spaces have been expanded by clearing out clutter and moving the Southbank Centre offices into a new building and the external terraces have again become vibrant public spaces.
