When complete in spring 2023, the Brown University Performing Arts Center, located in Providence, R.I., will feature a main hall that will be transformable into five different stage and audience configurations—ranging from a 625-seat symphony orchestra hall to a 250-seat proscenium theater to an immersive surround-sound cube for media performance. The shoebox-shaped hall can modulate physically and acoustically. On Dec. 11, crews topped off the 94,000-sq-ft project, being built under an integrated project delivery contract between the university, Shawmut Design and Construction and design firm REX. The building will anchor a future campus arts district.
