New Gold Coast cultural precinct amphitheatre open for business
ADCO was very proud of its involvement in the construction of the sensational amphitheatre project at HOTA (Home of the Arts), formerly known as The Arts Centre Gold Coast.
The venue was christened last Saturday night with a concert by Tim Minchin.
Fully equipped to present world-class performances to audiences of up to 5000, the Versatile Outdoor Space doubles as a sought-after function venue.
Gold Coast Mayor Tom Tate said with its 3.5 tonne door closed, the stage could accommodate up to 200 people seated in air-conditioned comfort.
“It will be a truly versatile venue where we can welcome home our Olympians, celebrate a wedding or present anything from a chamber orchestra to an international headline act,” Cr Tate said.
“The striking gravity-defying 600 square metre shade cover is now in place.
“Ten, 10-tonne support beams were welded in-situ and its footings buried 15 metres into the ground. This has allowed the free-standing structure to appear to float above the stage. Its infill features the distinctive voronoi (or polygon) pattern which will be reflected across the precinct.”
