Fuller Middle School, Chris Walsh Performing Arts Center

Framingham, Massachusetts, USA

Designed to inspire creativity and cross-disciplinary collaboration, Fuller Middle School’s new Chris Walsh Performing Arts Center aims to expand and develop the STEAM educational model for the school’s grade 6-8 students. The facility includes a 420-seat auditorium, perfect for hosting concerts, musicals, and other student presentations. The side seating and stage level in the hall are both at lobby level, making the room accessible to people with mobility issues, and we designed the auditorium to have seven motor-assist linesets to fly lights safely in an educational setting.
