Utah State University Performance Hall

Set in the foothills of Cache Valley, the Recital Hall articulates a built vision for a cross-discipline Arts District on this urban campus. This vision creates a strong interior connection between department and vibrant meeting places at the café, galleries and open media studios which allow for the essential exchange of ideas between faculty, students and the public. The Hall is designed to the highest, world-class acoustical standards for a variety of musical performances, teaching purposes and articulates the major program elements through\ the use of form and materials. The interior concrete walls have the hard sound-reflective qualities of the stone in great cathedrals. In addition the hall is fitted with adjustable, absorptive curtains for demonstrations and video presentations. The Hall’s major program elements include a 400-seat performance hall with a stage, dressing, practice and a green room. The support spaces — control and sound rooms, concession/box office, and coatroom — are attached to the outside boundaries of the Main Hall and vary in shape and volume. Theatre varied spaces are articulated on the exterior sheathing of reflective zinc that crawl up three sides of the Main Hall. The zinc is faceted like the nearby mountain foothills to create subtle changes in color, reflecting the sky and surrounding surfaces and introducing light into selected spaces.  Design Architect was Sasaki. Our principals and staff members involved in this project from design through construction while associated with another firm.
