Architecture: Wolfe Center for the Arts by Snøhetta: “..Snøhetta has created a grand open hall that greets the visitor from the main entrance. Sunlit and spacious, the lobby provides views upward to the lounges, classrooms and studios of the art, music, and drama departments on the second level. Situated at the heart of the building, the proscenium theater seats 400 and can be used for a variety of performance programs. It is designed in the style of the great Broadway halls found in New York City and London. To meet the highest contemporary criteria for a theater of this kind, Snøhetta is working in close collaboration with the internationally recognized theater planners Theatre Projects Consultants and Akustiks..The new collaborative arts center at Bowling Green State University in Bowling Green, Ohio contains classrooms as well as production and studio spaces to link students and faculty in the School of Art, the Department of Theatre and Film, and the College of Musical Arts.” Green roof..
