JACKSON HOLE CENTER FOR THE ARTS This 35,000 sf Performing Arts Pavilion – located near the village center and connected to an existing Arts and Education complex – includes a 500 seat proscenium theater for drama, dance, and music, as well as a public lobby, music practice rooms and theater support areas. CONCEPT STATEMENT The theater responds to the seasonal fluctuations of a resort town with a seating configuration placing 200 seats in an orchestra level allowing for an intimate setting, and 300 seats in a balcony above providing the capacity of a full theater. The transparent lobby connects the theater to the community, revealing the activity within as well as bringing the surrounding landscape into the space. The grass amphitheater, an extension of the lobby, leads up to a park at street level. The building masses are unified by a skin of wood slats that are exterior cladding, sun shading and mechanical screening. A continuous canopy through the entry spaces unifies the sequence from street to lobby. The exposed concrete fly tower and wood slats express a utilitarian nature of the early local built environment.
