Archtober Building of the Day: Frank Sinatra School of the Arts

3 October 2012 from 1pm to 2pm

The Frank Sinatra School of the Arts creates a powerful architectural identity for this school whose design celebrates it specialized curriculum in instrumental music, vocal music, fine arts, drama and dance and connects visually, programmatically and spatially with the surrounding community. The transparency of the building’s primary façade reveals the studio and rehearsal spaces within, as well as draws the city into the building at the first two levels. Framed by a perimeter of classrooms, the multi-story skylit atrium cuts through the building to illuminate interior spaces and highlight the oval form of the 800-seat concert hall at the center of the building. The five-story structure culminates in a rooftop landscape courtyard for gatherings and outdoor performances.
