Have your say: Winchester’s outdoor event space designs
Press Release: 10/09/2013
Winchester City Council is asking members of the public to comment on the designs for a new portable event space for the Winchester District, to be used in the city as well as in the surrounding towns and villages.
Design Engine is an award winning architectural practice based in Winchester. Their design is based on a triangular mobile pavilion which can be transported to Winchester District locations in a trailer. GTMS’s proposal is a 20 foot mirrored shipping container: the mirrored panels reflecting the immediate environment in which the container is placed. What Architecture’s design is based on a diamond pavilion that can be inflated within an hour.
The designs will be on display in Winchester’s award-winning Tourist Information Centre, the Theatre Royal Winchester café, Bishop’s Waltham Parish Council offices, and Wickham Co-op at the following times:

Winchester City Council’s Deputy Leader, Cllr Robert Humby, said:
Local communities have told the Council that they need covered spaces for day-to-day gatherings as well as more formal occasions. The project provides an opportunity to reinforce local pride in the District’s long tradition of public art as part of its historic street scenes, as well as its growing reputation as a creative centre in the South.
Please tell us which design you would prefer and how your organisation might use the space. Please send all comments to Alison Woods, Winchester City Council’s Economy and Arts Development Manager, at firstname.lastname@example.org by Monday 30 September 2013.
