The Seattle SeaHawks and AEG commissioned Future Cities to develop a portable 5,000-seat theatre venue in Seattle, which could transform exhibition space at Qwest Field into a fully functioning theater—then revert to its original exhibition format. The solution was to create a series of portable components that included concession operations, seating, staging, rigging, walls of curtains and appropriate sound control panels. Like the touring shows themselves who crated and transported their necessary equipment and assembled for each performance, the entire theatre was conceived of in this manner. Utilizing the existing shell of the convention center as the weather enclosure, and the underutilized restrooms and service areas, the cost of construction was 1/10th of comparably sized venues elsewhere.
