QUAD VIASUAL ARTS AND MEDIA CENTRE

QUAD brings together two of Derby’s former arts organisations, Q-Arts and Metro Cinema within a unique landmark building that is now the new home for both art and film in the heart of Derby.
Cities: DERBY
Countries: UNITED KINGDOM
Categories: CULTURAL ARCHITECTURE
Date: 2008
The project provides a range of facilities including the Q-Arts Gallery with exhibition space, workshops, offices and public spaces including a shop, café and the two-screen Metro Cinema. 
The building’s envelope plays with materiality and context, with references to the translucency and delicacy of silk and ceramics – materials which were once at the heart of Derby’s manufacturing and trades industries.
