University of Central Florida School of Performing Arts

The School of Arts at the University of Central Florida completes the first of a two phase Performing Arts Master Plan to accommodate their expanding cultural curriculum. The design was conceived as two front doors and strengthens both visual and physical connections between the institution and the surrounding city of Orlando. The Phase One academic buildings house large dance and acting studios, rehearsal spaces for orchestra and chorus, individual practice rooms, and faculty offices. Courtyard facades become ‘finished’ edges that reflect the syncopation of the rooms behind. Surrounding exterior facades—the ‘temporal’ edges—await the addition of a Phase Two when they will be recycled.

 

In addition to uniting the University and surrounding community through the cohesive power of the arts, the complex also relates to other campus buildings to define an Arts quadrangle where outdoor concerts and a sculpture garden coexist. Boundaries between the arts continue to break down inside where the functions of teaching and performance merge and the disciplines of music and theater overlap/interact through shared spaces.
