The new Music & Art Center creates much-needed studio space for the arts and acoustically designed rehearsal and performance spaces for music. It is organized into a music wing and an art wing, connected by a shared student gallery lobby.
The center is a wood, masonry and steel-framed structure with predominantly brick veneer and metal siding. The building’s design relies on solid forms created by the classic terra-cotta brick masses in contrast to large compositions of glass and windows.
The CMU structure and brick skin of the music wing contribute to the sound isolation needed by the music wing’s recital areas.
