Princeton University, Lewis Center for the Arts

project at a glance

The Lewis Center for the Arts at Princeton University comprises three technically advanced, sustainably designed buildings: the Wallace Dance Building and Theater, the New Music Building, and the Arts Tower.

The Wallace Dance Building and Theater houses programs in dance, theater, and music theater, with multiple, flexible performance spaces, all supported by LED performance lighting.

The New Music Building enables the Department of Music to expand its instructional, practice, and research facilities. It includes rehearsal space for the orchestra and chorus, a jazz studies studio, and practice rooms equipped with new pianos from Steinway & Sons.

The complex also includes the CoLab, a flexible “white box” space for artistic and cross-disciplinary collaborations, and the Arts Tower, which includes gallery space, administrative offices, and additional studios.

The three buildings are connected at ground level by the Forum, an 8,000 square-foot open indoor gathering space that will serve as a lobby for the multiple venues complex and as an additional informal performance space. Above the Forum is an outdoor plaza with a reflecting pool.
