Corby Cube (side view)

Corby Cube  (side view)
With over 2,050 panes of glass fitted into place and 15,500 tonnes of concrete poured, the stunning Corby Cube was finally opened to the public in November 2010.

Without even being completed the building had already gathered international acclaim by being runner-up in the prestigious LEAF Awards for the Best Public Building Design of the Year and has a BREEAM rating of ‘Excellent’ - the only theatre in the UK to receive this level. Now architects, Hawkins\Brown, are confident that it can continue its success as they plan to put in a submission for the Royal Institute of British Architecture (RIBA) – the UK’s most prestigious architecture award scheme.

Two and a half years and £30 million later, the striking structure has changed Corby’s skyline for ever. The clever design of the building integrates public services with recreation spaces and the stylish glass cladding exterior is a stunning addition to the Parkland Gateway public space.

Arts and culture are at the heart of Corby Cube and the Corby Cube represents the regeneration of the town. Included in the Cube are a state of the art theatre, (•445-seat walnut-clad theatre with curved retractable seating system providing the opportunity for flexible flat floor auditorium),
library, council offices, registry office, restaurant. It also has a terraced roof garden. (update...still no roof garden)

I like the glint. Nice shiny building. (I find the border a bit distracting.)
