Peaceful coexistence is one goal for the weight rooms, 400-seat theatre, rehearsal rooms for drama, dance, and music, and NCAA-regulation gymnasium (among other things) all packed together on a compact site. Silence and support for young, sometimes unsure voices in the theatre is another. Glass walls enclose the theatre, their potentially harsh acoustic effect moderated by a wooden screen that adapts its form depending on location in the room. The result is a vibrant, transparent space that retains warmth and support for those inside.
