P.A.R.C. Pavilion, Camp Ladore
The design challenge was to create a single building able to function as a performing arts center, a summer camp recreation hall, and a multi-purpose conference center. The new 21,000 SF PARC Pavilion is a major success.
As a performing arts center, the facility seats 1,200 all within 100' of center stage. State-of-the-art acoustical, lighting and audio-visual systems have produced rave reviews from local and international theatrical and musical performers.
With the curtain dropped and the seating removed, the rear wing provides a camp program for 300 youth with regulation high school basketball and volleyball courts, while leaving the front wing isolated to serve as a conference center for 200.
