The Perelman Performing Arts Center is a multipurpose performing arts centre located in the heart of Manhattan, NYC, exactly in the northeast corner of the World Trade Center complex.
Plans to build this Performing Arts Center go back to 2004 and were part of the large redevelopment plan for the WTC area that followed the 2001 September 11th attack.
In 2015, Joshua Ramus from REX Architecture NY was announced as design architect, and Davis Brody Bond as executive architect.
The building was projected into this very sensitive area of NYC through a unique and complex façade that simultaneously appears simple and timeless, it’s after all a 12,000 sqm cube that stands out in the northern edge of the WTC complex. The building was designed to become a beacon for the arts in lower Manhattan, offering a flexible theatre that could be combined into over 60 different configurations.
