Abstract

Lecture on the National Theatre Conservation Management Plan. In 2007 the National Theatre began thinking about how its mission is reflected in its building. The priorities were three-fold: to maintain the fabric and infrastructure of a hardworking building; to continue to develop artistic capability; and to improve amenities for audiences. We wanted to explore ways in which the building could respond to the dramatically changing environment of the South Bank; and we saw the potential to open the building up, making it, in parts, literally more transparent so as to reveal the processes of the hundreds of craftspeople, designers, actors and technicians working under its roof.
