Performing Arts and Convention Center Design

For decades we’ve partnered with clients locally – here in Fort Wayne – and in other communities to design a number of grand, technologically advanced performing arts and convention centers. This kind of architecture is highly specialized. It’s called for us as project leader to assemble teams of experienced niche designers and contractors. And we ourselves at Elevatus Architecture have served on such teams as a provider or consultant.

What contributes most to good performing arts and convention center design is a solid understanding of ...

  • architectural acoustics,
  • theatre design,
  • auditorium design,
  • stage and auditorium lighting, and
  • auditorium seating configuration.

Traditional A/V and mechanized stage technology also may be specified with state-of-the-art digital technology to achieve the desired objectives. But, of course, much more is involved.

Whether we’re designing a performing arts or convention center as a stand-alone facility or incorporating it into another – a school building, perhaps, or an arts complex – we always consider its impact on the audience it serves. How such a venue is to fit in with the life of a community is as much a part of the client’s vision as the venue’s design features. And we aim to serve that vision faithfully.
