The Barbican Theatre in London has commissioned Stirling Prize hopefuls Caruso St John and acoustic consultant Kirkegaard Associates of Chicago to redevelop the Barbican Hall in a £6 million project. The hall will be closed for four months from June to September 2001 for the work to take place, which will include new lighting, walkways, stage risers, and a new curved stage canopy.

The Barbican has also chosen Allford Hall Monaghan Morris to create a phased strategic masterplan for redesigning the centre's internal spaces as the 'fifth auditorium'. The practice's work will include two new 'clearly defined' linked entrances at ground level, a new internal bridge, new lighting, and better routes and catering, retail and information points.
