The Curve
Location: Rutland Street, Leicester, United Kingdom
Status: Complete
Completion Date: 2008
Floor Area: 2,600 square metres
Architect: Rafael Vinoly Architects
Steel Contractor: William Hare
Deck Profile: Ribdeck 80

Based in the redeveloped Cultural quarter in Leicester City Centre, the Curve theatre opened in Autumn 2008, and is one of the main flagship projects in the regeneration of the city.

This ambitious and innovative design has complete architectural transparency, with the weight of the structure suspended from the roof of the building. The long spanning capacity of Ribdeck 80 allowed the number of steel members in the structure to be kept to a minimum, emphasising the light and airy form of the structure.
