Second Stage Theatre

A collaboration with Rem Koolhaas for the renovation and conversion of an existing 20,000-square-foot bank building in the Times Square area to a 299-seat performing arts theater with fly stage, rehearsal space, dressing rooms, offices and public lobby. The architects sought to exploit the unique condition of the windowed wall with a moving curtain that emphasizes the transformative experience of the theater. The seating "wedge" is conceived as an object in the auditorium space and creates the acoustic vestibule between the auditorium and the lobby.
