The Milton Keynes Theatre and Gallery building designed by architects Andrzej Blonski Michael Heard, was shortlisted in 2000 for the RIBA (Royal Institute of British Architects) Stirling Prize for architecture. The prize is awarded to the architects of the building which has made the greatest contribution to British Architecture during the last year. The theatre and gallery building finished fourth in the Arts & Leisure category.
During construction 25,000 tonnes of concrete were delivered to the site.

More than 10,000 architects and sub contractors drawings were used on the project.

18,000 tonnes of soil were removed from the site.

500km of electrical cabling were used in the buildings - enough to reach from Central Milton Keynes to Stirling in Scotland.

Overall, the project cost £30m.
