In October 2010, the Waterside Theatre opened its doors in Aylesbury near London. The town's new emblem mirrors in its floor plan and roof structure the shape of the "Chiltern Hills" in South East England.
The bar-shaped timber columns in the inside and outside area refer to the depths of the forest. The facade construction whose supporting structure is external, which means that the building's envelope is actually built inside (reversed facade), describes a floor plan having the shape of a peanut with six different radii of curvature.
