On June 9, the Dallas Center for the Performing Arts Foundation unveiled the design for a 600-seat multiform theater by the Office for Metropolitan Architecture of Rotterdam and New York City—architect for the Seattle library that opened in May. The $275-million Dallas Center for the Performing Arts, when open in 2009, will complete the eastern terminus of the Dallas Arts District. It includes the theater, which will accommodate thrust, proscenium and arena stages; an opera house; the City Performance Hall and the Annette Strauss Artist Square and Grand Plaza.
