This post to update you about some exciting developments happening in Arts One on our Mile End Campus. Queen Mary University of London has committed to a major investment aimed at improving and enhancing our arts and culture facilities. The new facilities will ensure that we can continue to support teaching and research that is both world leading, inclusive and accessible to the communities we work with.
The enhanced facilities, for which accessibility has been a driving principle — will include:
- A new cinema designed by leading architects McFarland-Latter, including the latest in surround-sound and projection technologies;
- The instalment of new digital technologies for motion capture and ambisonic playback in Rehearsal Room 3;
- A new production suite adjacent to Rehearsal Room 3 including a fully sound-proofed recording booth, and control facilities for video and audio production;
- Improved lighting, sound and seating in Room G.34 enabling flexible use as a seminar room, gallery or installation studio;
- Improvements to the toilet facilities in the Arts One Foyer, including improvements to the accessible bathroom facilities;
There may be some temporary disruption while these works are completed, but we are working hard to keep these to a minimum as much as possible. We will also provide regular updates on progress by email, via a project Sharepoint site, and in details posted within the Arts One Foyer. The construction work will mean some temporary changes to the Arts One Foyer as a work and meeting space, students might like to consider using our online tool to book a study space on our Mile End campus:
