The designers in DLR Group|Westlake Reed Leskosky’s (DLR Group|WRL) Cultural+Performing Arts Studio have strengthened its position as an award-winning global design leader in this diverse specialty practice that includes visual and performing arts facilities for institutional and higher education clients.
Review our work over the past year:
Over the past year, we expanded our unique model as the world’s most deeply integrated cultural design practice to include media and technology expertise. We designed projects nationally and internationally–from Broadway in New York City to a new Broadway theater district in Shanghai. We cut the ribbon on a comprehensive arts district utilizing historic tax credits, a project that serves as a national model for urban renewal and economic development. We applied our experience working with world-class institutions to cultivate best practices, focus on trend-setting innovations, and develop and disseminate our expertise through media and social media channels. And throughout all of this, we found many opportunities to collaborate across sectors, working with DLR Group’s Higher Education, Hospitality, and Sports studios to bring added value to our clients.
In this annual design review, you will find insight from DLR Group’s Cultural+Performing Arts design professionals and examples of our most innovative designs from 2017. To our clients, partners, and friends, and on behalf of the DLR Group Cultural+Performing Arts Studio, thank you for a remarkable year.
