Double Win for Jellyfish Theatre at AJ Small Projects Award

The Jellyfish theatre was awarded first prize in the Architects' Journal Small Projects Awards last night as well as winning the AJ Small Buildings Sustainability prize. The project co-commissioned by The Architecture Foundation with theatre production company, The Red Room formed part of the London Festival of Architecture 2010 and saw the creation of a 120-seater theatre made entirely from recyclced and reclaimed materials by Berlin-based artist/architect duo Koebberling & Kaltwasser. Lasting for just a few months last summer the theatre housed specially commissioned plays that dealt with the theme of climate change in our present society.

Martin Kaltwasser accepted the £1500 prize yesterday evening at a ceremony held at the Building Centre. Competition Judge Will Alsop said: ‘It's the most inventive project and was done with a certain spirit and enthusiasm."
