Buildings: Adelaide Festival Centre

The Adelaide Festival Centre occupies a site behind Parliament House and above the banks of the River Torrens. The Centre has become the focal point for Adelaide's biennial Festival of Arts. It comprises the Festival Theatre with 2000 seats, the more intimate Dunstan Playhouse, the Space - a flexible studio theatre - and an outdoor amphitheatre. The building has a modern design which is complemented by the Hajek sculpture plaza and is now surrounded by landscaping featuring South Australian yakka plants. Its ambitious construction reflects the desire for South Australia to be a premier location for arts and cultural events. Adelaide Festival Centre was officially opened on 2 June 1973. The building was completed in 1977.
