To improve the sound, the acousticians, JaffeHolden, lined up flangelike panels along the front of the side walls to bounce sound inward.

After extensive material testing, fabrication testing and prototyping- the installation is set to be completed this fall and will be the first world-class performance hall to be clad with recycled resin.

This highly collaborative project laid the groundwork for the new 3form wood collection. The innovative material becomes the highlight of the innovative design. When installed, the performance hall will glow with the warmth of wood enhanced by the luminosity of quality recycled resin.
