THEATER

The Fort Worth Community Arts Center is envisioned as a multidisciplinary cultural arts hub, which fills the need for an 800 seat theater in the Fort Worth area. The project involved the restoration of the current 500 seat theater, addition of the new larger theater, a smaller black box theater, as well as additional gallery, rehearsal, classroom and dining spaces.

This semester-long project was co-created with Shaheen Gazvini and Jennifer Lauring.

Research

Our initial research began by examining parts of both the urban and rural landscape--both of which iconically represent Texas's rich history and potential future. This research translated into a piece of architecture that was relative to the context, both on an immediately local scale and to the state as a whole.

Concept

The building is designed as a large scale theater, with an audience as the public space, the stage as the "motherboard" or public circulation, and the back stage as the main program.

The central "motherboard" becomes the hub in which all other programmatic elements connect. Internally, the motherboard is mainly used for circulation, but it also houses gallery space, lecture nooks, and balconies overlooking downtown Forth Worth. The outside covering is made of a digital LED light screen that changes color and function according to the use.
