Letter from the editor
We shape a better world.

Arup has deep roots in the arts. The Sydney Opera House, one of our first commissions, continues to define aspirations for venues around the world. Over the decades, we've played a key role in projects ranging from concert and recital halls to theatres and opera houses.

Today, the firm is widely recognized as a leader in the design of arts, culture and entertainment facilities. Our consultants bring the highest level of knowledge and design expertise to all our work.

Arup has offices throughout the Americas, Australia, East Asia and Europe. Our commitment to excellence helps us attract and nurture designers and consultants with a passion for the arts. It is their talent and dedication that allows us to remain at the forefront of the industry.

This site presents a selection of our venue designs from the past five decades.
