Coffey Group Architecture, LLC


University Performing
Arts Center Studies

This confidential project is a special assignment for COFFEY GROUP ARCHITECTURE, LLC* that was requested by the University’s Chancellor to study a way to fulfill an unfounded need on campus. That need is a performing arts center and arts education facility for music and drama with appropriate practice and rehearsal spaces clustered around other related academic space and performance spaces. The spaces include a 1500-seat Proscenium Stage for Drama, Dance, Opera and Music with Shell, Flexible Acoustic Absorption and Proscenium Reducer, a 300-seat Chamber Music space, plus a 150-seat Flexible Studio. This $110 million facility will be funded by adjacent retail and residential development and tax increment rather than state appropriation or traditional contribution methods.
