In 2018/19 Adam was in Hong Kong working with his friend David Rule, owner of the Serious Group of companies. Amongst other things, he directed the design of a new type of theatre, one that would support a full tilt production of, say, Phantom of the Opera but it would be movable - demountable in other words. Read more about de-mountable theatre.
In 2019/20 Adam was in the UAE working with Adrian Bell of Action Impact. His task was to direct the production of a high-profile audio/visual visitor centre for a multinational corporation. The work was innovative in that the design called for it to be updatable and state of the art, but also to be installed within the corporation’s headquarters.
The project has led Adam to think hard about the upcoming need to re-purpose office space for innovation and experience centres now that so many more people are working from home and only coming into the office once or twice a week.
