  • 1.  Planning a new theater

    Posted 02-08-2020 18:29
    A couple of recent posts here inspired me to get back to the keyboard and write a piece about how to plan for a new theater space. In it, I'm falling back on fifteen years in the architecture field, where I worked on several fine arts centers in addition to courthouses, corporate headquarters, and other types of facilities and saw firsthand what proper -- and improper -- up-front planning can do for a building's lifespan and for those who work in it.

    Hopefully it'll help some of you avoid some of the usual headaches.
