Adequacy of converted buildings asPerforming art centres

Performing arts are art forms in which artists use their body or voice to
convey artistic expression— as opposed to Visual arts. It includes dance,
music, opera, theatre, magic, spoken word, circus arts, recitation and
musical. Performing arts centre (PAC) refers to a multi-use performance
space that is intended for use by various types of the performing arts,
including dance, music and theatre. The intended multiple use of performing
arts centres in this sense differentiates them from single-purpose concert
halls, opera houses or theatres.1
For centuries Performing Arts Centres (PAC’s) have posed a series of
environmental problems to the passive designer due to intermittent heavy
occupancy which causes immense heat build-up. The same problem is still
experienced hitherto, characterized by the vigorous activities of the
performers on stage verses the sedentary nature of the large number of
occupants in the limited space requires a high air exchange rates.
