The OISTAT Architecture Commission (AC) exists to facilitate communication and understanding about theatre buildings amongst architects, consultants, technicians and artists worldwide. Through communication about common interests, the commission provides forums for professional growth, develops projects and collects and disseminates information. It meets in order to exchange knowledge about theatre architecture and related technical topics. The commission welcomes participation by anyone with an interest in theatre buildings.
Every 4 years AC arranges a competition on theatre architecture (TAC) for young architects and architectural students. The next competition will be held in 2011. Selected projects are exhibited in Prague at PQ, which is one of the world's leading exhibitions for scenography and theatre architecture. In this way it provides participants with an opportunity to be part of an important event of the theatre world.
AC publishes catalogues and publications concerning theatre architecture around the world.
It provides a website for information, communication and exchange of knowledge.
