The Performing Arts Center, a new building, will support performance, teaching, and research for music, theater, and dance. Anchoring a future campus arts district, the planned 80,000 GSF center will expand the possibilities for the creation and staging of experimental, collaborative, and engaged performance work. With a radical, one-of-a-kind approach to spatial, acoustic and technical flexibility, this building is designed to inspire innovative new art-making, enable unprecedented artistic collaboration and serve as a hub for performance at Brown. The vision for this center is fully supported by Brown's strategic plan, Building on Distinction: A New Plan for Brown (2013). The project is anticipated to achieve a minimum of LEED silver certification. For more detailed information about this project visit the Performing Arts Center website.
