SUNY Fredonia - Rockefeller Arts Center

Fredonia, NY

The Michael C. Rockefeller Arts Center is one of the five major I.M. Pei-designed buildings on the SUNY Fredonia campus. With Pei's distinctive geometric shapes and beige poured-in-place board-formed concrete, it is one of the buildings that has given Fredonia its distinctive architectural feel. The 140,000-square-foot complex contains three performance venues, two galleries and numerous studios, production shops, offices and classrooms.

The current project, which includes renovation and re-purposing of existing spaces as well as a two-story, 40,000 square foot addition on the west side of the building, will better meet the training and performance needs of today's students. It will bring several programs including Dance and New Media, which are currently taught in other buildings on campus, under one roof. The project will also provide a new visible public entrance and café at the northwest corner of the structure to better welcome patrons who park on that side of the building.
