Join David Zenk at USITT on Thursday, March 15, 2018 at 2:45 PM for High Performance: Why Retrofitted and Renovated Performing Arts Centers can be Better than New. As often cited, “the most sustainable building is the one that is already built.” Join the discussion and learn how renovating, retrofitting or repurposing a performing arts venue can be a valid option to building a new facility. Learn how an existing building can prompt new design paradigms for music, dance, and theatre and how old buildings can inspire dancers, actors and musicians. This session will explore practical challenges and put forward fresh ideas for your next performing arts center design project.
The USITT 58th Annual Conference will be taking place in Fort Lauderdale, Florida From March 14 - 17, 2018. David will be joined by Curtis Kasefang and Jason Prichard of Theatre Consultant Collaborative and Carl Giegold of Threshold Acoustics. Learn more at: https://www.usittshow.com/
