Levitt Bernstein is the practice which designed the original Royal Exchange Theatre in 1976 and subsequent refurbishment in 1996. Levitt Bernstein is a corporate member and continues to actively support this amazing theatre company.
I was a regular patron and general ‘hang abouter’ here as a teenager in the 1980’s! An earliest memory was seeing Ian McDiarmid in EDWARD II in 1986. Astonishing.
Juggling a thousand life and work balls in the air
At the Royal Exchange…EDWARD II 1986, ALL MY SONS 1988, THE CRUCIBLE 1990…and more recently A VIEW FROM THE BRIDGE 2011. Powerful plays brilliantly staged. I also stood last year for Akram Khan’s GISELLE by the English National Ballet
Asking myself why not
All walks of life can be discussed and expressed in a myriad of ways. They provide an uncensored window for everyone to experience the multiple facets of the human condition.
People- collaborating with, creating with and designing for
That’s like choosing a favourite child… anything with a strong female lead and immersive story.
Starting my first day’s work at Levitt Bernstein in 1996 on the refurbishment of this theatre…serendipity
The reason I’m an architect
It’s warm, resilient, creative, inclusive and proud
