Opening night close for Kent State performing arts center
The curtain opens on the Tuscarawas Performing Arts Center at Kent State University in early 2010, giving the New Philadelphia, Ohio, school a 1,100-seat multipurpose theater. The team of Legat & Kingscott of Columbus, Ohio, and Schorr Architects of Dublin, Ohio, designed the 50,000-sf facility with a curving metal and glass façade to create a sense of movement and activity. Interior details, such as maple panels, add warmth to the modern building. A large, open lobby does double duty as conference and banquet space. Water-efficient landscaping, a white reflective roof, high-efficiency HVAC system, and lots of daylight should help the $17.3 million facility earn LEED certification.
