Center Stage Renovation Construction Tour
July 27, 2016 @ 5:00 pm - 6:30 pm
1.5 AIA/CES LUs available
In order to better accommodate an audience of more than 100,000 people in each year in Baltimore, Center Stage is undergoing a comprehensive renovation of its historic home on Calvert Street in Mount Vernon.
The project encompasses a complete transformation of all public spaces, a re-imagined Head Theater, an experimental black box performance space, and a long overdue overhaul of mechanical and electrical infrastructure. A new Education Center and Costume Shop will be built as an addition to the existing building. State-of-the-art audiovisual and lighting effects permeate the design, pairing 21st Century technology with a historic backdrop. The project has involved a preservation easement concerning particular interior features and has required comprehensive review with the community, CHAP, MHT, and the City Planning Department.
Please join us for a tour of the construction in progress, led by the design team, before the site is closed to visitors until the official unveiling in 2017. After the tour we will meet at Brewhouse No. 16 for happy hour drinks.
