dc.description.abstract The following is a building program for the Indiana Repertory Theatre. It involves a process by which one establishes goals, collects and analyzes facts, determines needs of users, and compositely sets a guideline and atmosphere for design with the general and specific information to do so. A theatre is an expression of its community through the art and technology it houses and should therefore involve and evolve with the community. The proposed site is within the Mile Square, Indianapolis, Indiana, on the southwest section of the intersection of Illinois and Georgia Streets (see map p. 33). Each proposed activity connected with the new facility will be categorized and placed in a relational aspect to the project as a whole. This, then, includes any activities which may be developed as to add to the intentions of the concept 'community theatre' as an entity and aid in its growth and evolvement.The Indiana Repertory Theatre is governed by a forty member board of directors as a non-profit organization. As such, its organization is based on the notion of growth of the professional theatre and on the element of change integral to that process.IRT desires to provide a catalyst for new and expanded ways to serve its surrounding community. Its objectives are threes to present a range of dramatic expression, to establish a facility which encourages participation by the entire community, to serve multiple arts purposes. The city presently has no facilities of the proposed sizes that encourage emerging performing groups (ballet and opera) to have public presentation. In addition, Indianapolis provides no movie theatre which is dedicated to classic and experimental film.While the primary focus of the new facility will be its service to the Indiana Repertory Theatre, it must also be viewed in its context to the community as a whole. The facility should be active at all times to provide a catalyst for the development of more dynamic activities in the inner city. The 200,000 or more persons who can be ultimately served by the proposed facility each year is a critically important element in the long-range downtown redevelopment plans.
