Oregon State University’s new Arts and Education Complex integrates programs in music, theatre, digital communications, and the visual arts. It includes an acoustically superior 500-seat concert hall and a smaller, reconfigurable theatre that will serve the university’s production, rehearsal, and teaching needs.
Both auditoriums do double duty—they’re places for performance as well as instruction, so we designed them with the learning process in mind. They prioritize learning through performance for all students, no matter what their discipline, moving the university from a STEM to STEAM education model.
