Lotus Theatre | Macquarie University

Lotus Theatre (W6D Lecture Theatre) is an approximately 500 seat teaching facility, complete with:

Flexible seating configuration - retractable lower levels of theatre-style seating to allow for level seating alternative
Full Macquarie University audio visual suite
Air conditioning
Foyer with vending machines
Toilet facilities

The building was created as a temporary space for use while the Macquarie Theatre refurbishment was completed, and will continue to supplement the teaching facilities already provided by Macquarie University for its lifespan.

To meet the program, design and site constraints, this theatre was constructed as a steel frame with tensile covering, which means the building can be relocated if necessary. The tensile membrane technology by the main contractor Fabritecture is the same sustainable style of building used for both short and long-term structures at well-known sites including Sydney Wildlife World and Luna Park.

As well as requiring less energy consumption to develop, Lotus Theatre is a recyclable building solution, with minimal material use. This type of building also meant there was less noise, dust and disturbance created during its construction than if it were a brick-and-mortar building.
