Dee and Charles Wyly Theater

In the typical theater, the proliferation of front-of-house and back-of-house spaces threatens to strangle the auditorium itself, buffering the performance from the outside world. The compact, vertical orientation of the Dee and Charles Wyly Theatre, with its 12 storeys, allows support spaces to be stacked above and beneath the auditorium rather than wrapped around it.
