REBUILDING THE WORLD TRADE CENTER SITE
Ronald O. Perelman Performing Arts Center, located at the World Trade Center near the 9/11 Memorial in New York City, will become a centerpiece for the arts community. Resembling an illuminated cube, the center offers 90,000 square feet of world-class dance, music, theater, film, opera, and community space on three levels. Fittingly named, the Play level (top), the Performer level (middle), and the Public level (bottom), the Play level includes multiple performance spaces that hold 499-, 250-, and 99-seats and the Public level includes restaurant/bar space. The unique “building within a building” structure created unique challenges for acoustic separation.
