Via It’s Nice That:

The Shed, a new temporary auditorium for the National Theatre, adds a striking splash of colour to this corner of the capital. Architects Haworth Tompkins covered the structure in rough-sawn timber cladding with they then had painted a brilliant, vivid red creating a wonderful juxtaposition with the muted modernist concrete surroundings.

And by employing two excellent photographers to document the new space, in the form of Philip Vile and Helene Binet, it’s possible to get a real sense of just how big an impact it has had on the South Bank.
