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.
