Abstract
Salvokop, the site chosen for this project, is due for some major changes in the next few years. Current development on Freedom Park, the future Gautrain initiative as well as a new drive by the local municipality to integrate the area into the CBD of Pretoria through a major 'Cultural Spine' throught the city make Salvokop a future destination of major interest.

The Centre for the Performing Arts seeks to appeal to all facets of South African culture through a medium of expression that all appreciate: the medium of performance art. Specifically speaking, perfromance art applies to music, dance and drama. It is the ambition of this project to cater for al these forms on a level with which both public and performer may participate.

Integration into the urban landscape is key, with this Centre engaging with the intended urban fabric of the area in such a way as to create a ariety of indoor and outdoor recreation and performance spaces.
