Southwestern Adventist University – Performing Arts

Callahan & Freeman’s design of a performing arts theater for a university wraps a large brick and glass lobby around one side of a much taller, sloped floor auditorium. A proscenium arch frames the stage, with a mobile orchestra shell flanking the organ. The scene dock and instrument storage are clustered around an equipment courtyard and loading dock. The building welcomes circulation from both the street front as well as the interior campus behind.
