WAYANG PUPPET THEATRE AND WITH KIOSKS
by Rohit Sharma
The function of this structure is to be utilised as a Wayang theatre (more specially a Kuilt performance – shadow puppetry). The design centres around a performance space for shadow puppetry, drawing inspiration especially from the Kulit Performance and public street through the site. The ground floor consists of mini kiosks, where various shops will be available for pedestrians, and the first floor consists of the Wayang theatre, giving people the option to watch the performance from the inside and outside of the building via a roof terrace which doubles up as a roof garden for Peckham. An overarching curved glass roof with puppet images sandwiched between the two layers of glass panels animate the streetscape and the buildings.
