This state-of-the-art performing arts theatre with an open-air feel is a showcase of functional art, from the ground up, with terrazzo as the feature finish. The theater logo is displayed in zinc divider strips and water-jet cut squares throughout, from the sloped auditorium floor to the floors of 57 boxes of seating on four levels. Poured-in-place risers connect the rows of upper-level seating; precast stairs connect all levels. Geometric designs were used in the lobbies depicting a chevron design visible from all floors above.
