Theatre Green Book One Toolkit – Designing and Making


16. Modular Design

• Production often use similar core structures like walls and doors, blocks, building-fronts and basic scenic elements. A culture of reusing or adapting generic versions of these structures – ‘modular components’ – across multiple productions will reduce the volume of materials that theatre productions consume, and therefore carbon emissions. When working with these components, the creative teams’ focus can be on taking modular units and working out how to adapt, combine and clad them.

• Modular framing systems can replace welded steel framers for sets with a system that can be reused like Steeldeck.
