Western Connecticut State University, Visual and Performing Arts Center

This project, located on the University’s second campus, organizes and provides clarity to the various grouping of residence halls, sports facilities, and parking areas on a sylvan hilltop. The strong geometric arrangement of building shapes and landscape patterns highlights the entries into the facility and establishes a common central green space for the campus. The arts center is both a bustling academic environment as well as the most visited public place on the campus. As such, the new building provides a strong foundation for future campus development and invites the public to experience the arts.
