Preserving Performing Arts

Senior Theater Design Specialist | Senior Associate Phoenix

Kascey Haslanger

"I’m infatuated with preservation of historic theaters. These projects are challenging and magical all at the same time. Some burn fast, hauling like a freight train, some stall and restart. My most memorable projects have been those long-haul projects where the client, contractors, and design team persevered for many years to share in the joint pride of completion."
