As Project Architect for the Thomas Dixon Centre, Tamarind was recognised as the essential link between the consultant team and Queensland Ballet, constantly probing the possibilities and investigating the latest design and technology options to enhance the sustainability credentials of the build. Li Cunxin, Artistic Director, Queensland Ballet said, “Tamarind’s curious and considered approach of taking the time to learn and understand the complexities of the company, the art form and the performing arts industry has resulted in a design that is sympathetic to the historic attributes of the existing building whilst seamlessly integrating the expanded design brief culminating in a wonderful building that is a true representation of the Queensland Ballet”.
