Muncie Art Center, a performing art center integrated with a commercial center
This is the documentation of my thesis -in which the project designed was a performing arts center for Muncie, Indiana. The project includes a 1,000 seat theatre, a gallery, several shops and studios, exhibition areas, restaurants, stores, offices, and a parking structure.The art center is proposed for the southern end of Walnut Plaza in Muncie. It is bounded by Howard Street on the north, High Street on the west, Mulberry Street on the east, and Seymour Street on the south.The site chosen was of particular importance, since the activities that would take place in the Muncie Art Center would attract more people to Walnut Plaza. Also the relocation of the Muncie Civic Theatre into the Muncie Art Center would offer more cultural services to its patrons.The Muncie Art Center would act as a catalyst for the cultural development of the greater Muncie area.
