The Lewis Arts Center for the Arts takes arts at Princeton University to greater heights by expanding the performance, rehearsal and teaching spaces in state-of-the-art facilities. The complex brings together programs in Dance, Theater, Music Theater, and the Princeton Atelier, and expands the Department of Music’s instructional and research facilities. The complex comprises the Wallace Dance Building and Theater; the Arts Tower, and the New Music Building. The three buildings are integrated below ground in a Forum, a gathering space that serves the various venues in the complex. Above is an outdoor plaza with a reflecting pool. Skylights in the pool filter natural light into the Forum below. Encouraging curiosity and interaction, the plaza has overlooking views into the various practice spaces. The Wallace Dance Building and Theater is developed according to the idea of a “thing within a thing.” The Arts Tower is developed with an “embedded” concept, its tower connecting to the proportions of Princeton’s historic Blair Arch. The New Music Building is developed according to an idea of “suspension.” Above the orchestral rehearsal room individual practice rooms are suspended on steel rods. Acoustically separate, these individual wooden chambers have a resonant quality. Source by Steven Holl Architects.
