The Open Gate Performing Arts Foundation is intended to serve as an architectural and cultural focal point for Margate, inspiring new generations of musicians and actors. Modelled by acoustics and light, the structure is wholly made out of V-shaped CLT modules. The Form and Structure was designed using the hyperbolic paraboloid formula to create a sweeping pavilion roof.
