The Arts Team was runner-up in an invited international competition for three auditoria and considerable support facilities. The building reinterprets elements of the city of Rome, with strong enclosing walls flanking the buildings to form pedestrian streets leading to a central piazza with cafes and shops. The piazza opens on to a grand terrace in the manner of a great villa with views across a formal garden to the untouched Roman landscape. In the concert hall, a spectacular view of the cliff face of the Roman Villa Glori is framed by a picture window above the organ and platform, providing a dramatic backdrop for the performance and catching the evening sun.
