NEWS IN PICTURES

Hopkins Architects has unveiled these images of its recent competition win in Nicosia, Cyprus. The scheme for a new cultural centre is part of a planned wider cultural quarter in the island's capital, and will sit close to a new art gallery designed by Feilden Clegg Bradley. The ?80 million (£54 million) centre will be used for performing arts, showcasing national and international performances in music, dance, opera, ballet and theatre. It will seat up to 1,400 people, with a secondary 500-seat chamber for smaller live music events.

The scheme will also deliver an outdoor theatre space with a capacity of up to 2,000. London-based Hopkins will work alongside a local firm, Virdas and Patsalosavis, and will lead a team including Arup and acoustic experts Kirkegaard Associates. Completion is due at the end of 2010.
