Jeanne B. McCoy Community Center for the Arts
Through the collaboration of the local public School District, New Albany Village and Township, and the New Albany Company, the $15 million performing arts center is the cultural center for this fast-growing community just outside Columbus, Ohio. The Center includes a proscenium theatre, which is a venue for the Columbus Symphony, a small black box/rehearsal room, a dance studio, a range of stage and performer support spaces, classrooms, and an event lobby that also serves as a gallery space. The new building reinforces both the existing topography and the Georgian context of the existing campus. Open to natural light and views of the surrounding landscape by day, the Center's transparent lobby becomes a glowing beacon by night.
