The design of this building’s adaptive re-use takes inspiration from the surrounding campus style, with neo-Georgian brick detailing, TCU blonde masonry, simple masses and the proportions of human scale architecture. The building was designed to re-orient and expand the northwest entrance to the building, creating a welcoming space that promotes interaction with the larger campus.
Additional learning spaces were added to the building to improve its overall functionality and ability to continue to support and advance TCU’s modern dance program. A computer dance lab, also included in the redesign allows students and teachers to choreograph and monitor performance through the use of state-of-the-art technology. Disruption of the existing building wall was kept to a minimum allowing the wall to become part of the new lobby, emphasizing the relationship between old and new.
