As envisioned, the PAC will vastly expand Brown’s ability to create and stage new and existing works, combine art forms, and welcome world-renowned faculty and artists to learn from and inspire scholars across disparate fields of study.
Joshua Ramus, founder and principal of REX, calls the building both radically flexible and extremely precise. No arts space like it exists, he says:
“It is not a ‘one-size-fits-all’ auditorium, mediocre to all and excellent for none. It is literally five very specific, high-performance configurations in one. No other single-space venue can be a 250-seat chamber for spoken word and a 625-seat hall for a 100-piece orchestra, both with exceptional acoustics and intimacy.”
