The previous facility of the “3 Legged Dog” theater company was destroyed on September 11, 2001. It became the first cultural institution to rebuild near Ground Zero. The design focuses on exposing the conventionally hidden activities of theater production to the public. A rehabilitation of the ground floor of the MTA Battery Tunnel Garage, the public aspect of theatre is made possible through a highly transparent facade. The daily activities of creating technologically advanced theater are open to the street producing a unique urban spectacle. The interior 12,000sf program includes a 200-seat flexible theater, rehearsal space, contemporary art gallery, dressing rooms, administrative offices, and other support spaces.
