Wyly Theater Receives AIA Architecture Award

The Wyly Theater has been awarded a 2011 AIA Institute Honor Award for Architecture. Here are some comments from the jury that chose the ten winners of the annual accolade:

This building is an expression of a totally new way to investigate the potential of performative experimentation – completely re-choreographed the way in which one experiences a theater.

The flexibility of this building redefines theater in a way that is unique – curtains open, light comes in.

It contributes to the skyline without being so tall – the façade and treatment of the exterior are quite interesting looking as an object in the city.
