NEW YORK | World Trade Center Performing Arts Center

I did not see a thread for this any where, so here it is.

This is for the World Trade Center Performing Arts Center which will begin construction this year because right now a temporary exit from the PATH station is occupying the site until then.

The only few renders I could find:

A rendering of a preliminary design by Gehry Partners for a performing arts center at ground zero.

I doubt that this one will start this year, because the temporary PATH station will be needed for at least two more years.

But anyway, thanks for creating the thread and posting the renders. These are not final, though?! afaik the final design is not decided yet.

This thread is unnecessary. These renders are older than dirt and completely wrong. You didn't even label the architect (Frank Gehry).

Even if the renders are from freaking 2002, this thread is necessary. There is no where else to talk about the Performing Arts Center.

I hope this project never sees the light of day as a Frank Gehry project. He's the worst architect ever.

Get Richard Meier to design it instead.

Latest news I found on this.. definately a long way to go, but it's good to have a thread to discuss about the planning and news around the project

Plans for Ground Zero Arts Hub Shift Again

By ROBIN POGREBIN


A rendering of a preliminary design by Gehry Partners for a performing arts center at ground zero.

And then there were none.

When a performing arts center was first planned for the former World Trade Center site, four cultural organizations were chosen after a high-profile competition to anchor a complex that would make ground zero a new and vibrant cultural destination.

But over the years each of the organizations has fallen away.

The International Freedom Center — which was to explore human rights — was scuttled by Gov. George E. Pataki for attracting “too much controversy.” The Drawing Center, stung by criticism that some of its exhibitions had been “anti-American,” stayed in SoHo and renovated. And New York City decided that the Signature Theater would be too expensive, so that company built a new home on Theater Row instead.

That left only the Joyce Theater, which was to make the proposed center a home for dance as the reigning tenant and to call it the International Dance Center. Now, quietly, the plans have changed yet again. The performing arts center will instead be a multidisciplinary space that includes theater, music and film, as well as dance, said Maggie Boepple, its president. While the Joyce will retain a role at the site, dance will just be one part of many different kinds of programming.

After nine years of waiting and adjusting, the Joyce might be expected to be frustrated by this development. But Linda Shelton, the Joyce’s executive director, said her organization believed that to be part of the arts center in some way was better than not being part of it at all.

“Am I disappointed that it’s not going to be all dance all the time?” she said. “Of course I am. But I’m patient and I’m realistic, so I want to be there with whatever it is.”

As part of the new vision the center is shopping for an artistic director who will play a strong role in defining the direction and identity of the center.

“There is interest all over the world in this job,” Ms. Boepple said. “Whoever is the artistic head of this will be in charge of everything,”

City officials say the adjustment was necessary if the arts center were to be a viable enterprise in Lower Manhattan. “The Joyce can only use it so many weeks of the year,” said Julie Menin, the former chairwoman of Community Board 1, who serves on the arts center board. “It always made sense to have more than one cultural tenant.”

With the programming and price tag still to be determined, the board said it could not begin to raise money for the arts center, which is being designed by Frank Gehry. Previous estimates have ranged from $300 million to $700 million.

“Until we have set the programming, we can’t be asking people to give money,” Ms. Menin said.

To lower the construction costs the board has eliminated some features from the center, like classrooms. More critically the number of stages has been reduced from the four that were originally called for — three for the Signature and one for the Joyce — to a main stage and a 200-seat flexible space.

But even those plans remain in flux. The main stage had originally been touted as a 1,000-seat house that would fill a niche in a city that lacks theaters of that size. But now that plan is no longer definite because the board must determine whether it can afford to fit an auditorium that large on a site with limited square footage. “There will be a whole new redesign because we really changed the building,” Ms. Boepple said. “One of the things we’re looking at is whether a 1,000-seat theater is possible.”

Mr. Gehry, in a telephone interview, said he continued to roll with the punches. “The other program was grand and big, and it seemed in scale with the place,” he said. “We’ve got a smaller program now because of finances. I don’t take time to look backwards. We’ll make something out of it that works.”

The New York City Opera had aspired to be selected for the site — it now performs in various locations — but the center is not going to be an opera house or a symphonic hall, Ms. Boepple said, although performances in each discipline may be presented there.

The board has been consulting with various arts executives, including Jack O’Brien, the theater director, and Michael M. Kaiser, president of the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts in Washington.

With places like the Brooklyn Academy of Music, the Park Avenue Armory and a planned “culture shed” at Hudson Yards, some arts executives question the need for yet another multidisciplinary stage and its prospects for sustainability.

“I have strong reservations about where the resources are to pay for it,” said Karen Brooks Hopkins, president of the Brooklyn Academy. “All the existing institutions are struggling to meet their goals in a very tough environment.”

A preliminary board was named in 2011 as a prerequisite for tapping into $100 million that the Lower Manhattan Development Corporation — which oversees ground zero — had set aside for the center. Each of its members has agreed to donate or raise $5 million.

In addition to Ms. Menin they include the developers Larry Silverstein and John E. Zuccotti; Christy Ferer, the founder and chief executive of the Vidicom video company; and Zenia Mucha, an executive vice president of the Walt Disney Company. Patricia E. Harris, the first deputy mayor, serves as an ex officio member representing Mayor Michael R. Bloomberg.

The center has been delayed by some forces outside its control: political jockeying and the completion of a PATH station. There was also, at one point, the suggestion of moving the performing arts center off ground zero to the nearby site of the Deutsche Bank building.

Given that the center is now not expected to open until 2017 or 2018, Ms. Boepple said it is important to create a place that can change with the times. “We have to be somehow able with a crystal ball to design something that will be current when it opens and that means flexible,” she said. “Who knows what’s going to happen to the performing arts in five years?”

"Performing Arts Center – Construction will begin after 2013 since a temporary exit from the PATH station will occupy the site until then."

So will this start construction once the PATH station is removed? Or will they wait till 2WTC is done in like 5 years?

From what I understand, construction won't start till 2015, which is when they new PATH station will open. Makes sense considering they expect the building to be completed by 2017-2018.

"International Freedom Centre"?

Seriously?

Wow. Will they only be serving Freedom Fries™ and Liberty Toast™ there?

They should just build an extension to the 9/11 Memorial park there ... no structures ... Maybe that could be the home for the Fritz Koenig Sphere.

That is a wrong statement. Foundation work has been done in coordination with the VSC phase III.
