ARCA Design

Performance Center, Asheville, NC

Asheville is the largest city in Western North Carolina, and it is the vibrant heart of the region’s arts culture. Over the past few years, the concept of The Performance Center in Asheville has been developed by a group of dedicated individuals. This project represents the “Right-Fit” phase: an exercise in tailoring the initial masterplan (developed by WIlliam Rawn and Associates and CJMW Architecture) to match the changing considerations facing the Performance Center. A complex site, characteristic of Asheville’s rolling terrain, this schematic design process involved coordination between a number of challenging variables. Conceptual renderings and a physical model were produced as tools to provide interaction with the community, fellow designers, and potential donors.
