Ya me too but as a theater guy the interior design is much more important as in simplicity, ease, and accessibility by patrons, talent, and employees.

They should get Richard Meier to design it ... the Getty Center LA Architect.

Gehry's design was a masterpiece but seemingly too ambitious.
Richard Meier is a king and has no need nor will to work on cheap projects...
The best they can have is Snohetta (they would do a great job,pairing the theatre with the memorial museum they already designed)
Another option is to ask Ingels a discount as he is already commissioned to work next door!
..Murdoch would fund the project and give his beloved name(!) to the baby:"MURDOCH THEATRE"!!
...just my two cents!..

I guess after the 2wtc disaster we shouldn't have expected anything more than a box.

Awful if true about the new design. That would mean the only structure at the WTC Complex not downsized or dumbed down would have been 4WTC.

Its a distinct improvement from that hideous Gehry thing though.

..What does not improve is your lame taste!
Actually,i can't figure out how you can praise in another thread Gang's design which is very inspired and close from Gehry's standards!

Remember that this is only a basic design sketch to show the connections between spaces and a very simple rendering to illustrate a massing on the site, something that would take a couple hours at most to mock up. I bet the box will improve significantly once the interior is worked out. That is the most important part for theaters.

World Trade Center Performing Arts Center Architect Named

Quote:
After no less than eleven years, major design shake-ups, and a halved budget, the Performing Arts Center at the World Trade Center has finally taken a resolute step forward.

The center's President/Director Maggie Boepple and Chairman John Zuccotti has announced via press release that Brooklyn-based firm REX has been named the center's leading architect. Additional support will come from Davis Brody Bond, Charcoalblue, and DBI Projects.

The center has suffered massive funding cutbacks since its first design was conceptualized by Frank Gehry in the years immediately following 2001. The most recent vision for the performing arts center included a $200 million facility with two combinable theaters with seating for 600 to 700, and two smaller adjoined venues that could be used as rehearsal space or theaters.

The Lower Manhattan Development Corporation released the first $10 million of its $99 million pledge to the center last week. The remainder of the project's cost will be funded through private resources, according to the press release. At this time, what exactly that cost will be is unknown, and will be determined after the design process. In late October, the Wall Street Journal reported that about $160 million in federal funding had already been allocated to the PACWTC. The project has garnered considerable concerns surrounding its ability to provoke private funding in a city jam-packed with cultural institutions.

REX counts amongst its achievements the recladding of 5 Manhattan West, the Dee and Charles Wyly Theater in Dallas, the Vakko Fashion Center and Power Media Center in Istanbul, and the Seattle Central Library.
