The Ronald O. Perelman Center for the Performing Arts

Open House New York invites you to a design presentation and construction update on The Ronald O. Perelman Center for the Performing Arts with Joshua Ramus, Principal, REX Architecture, and Maggie Boepple, President and Director, The Ronald O. Perelman Center for the Performing Arts.

Scheduled to open in 2021, the Perelman Center will be a one-of-a-kind multidisciplinary performing arts center, offering innovative design and technological opportunities to help foster boundary-pushing work in theater, dance, music, film and contemporary and chamber opera.

Designed to respectfully embrace memory and celebrate rebirth as the final piece of the World Trade Center Master Plan, the Perelman Center’s 115,000 square foot ‘Mystery Box’ shrouds a dynamic workhorse interior that includes three highly flexible performance spaces and an artist rehearsal space, as well as a restaurant, café, and a full array of backstage facilities. The 138- foot-tall cubed-shaped building, with a grand outdoor staircase carved into one corner, will be clad in translucent marble laminated with glass. During the day, the facade will allow in light, while at night, it will dissolve to emit a warm, amber glow, creating a beacon at the heart of the World Trade Center plaza.
