The challenge of NT Future - the masterplan for regeneration of the National Theatre - was to relaunch Denys Lasdun’s 1976 masterpiece to reflect a radically changed context, while re-equipping it to enable creative growth for the National Theatre company. The key to this transformation was to re-engage the theatre with the river, creating new public space, and dynamically linking it to the South Bank and city.

RICS judges said the team – which included AECOM, Haworth Tompkins and Lend Lease –have successfully allowed the building to be better used and appreciated by visitors with new quality facilities, and opened up new opportunites for National Theatre company.
