Winston-Salem STUDIO Ideas for an Enhanced Theater District

The success of downtown Winston-Salem’s emerging rebirth, as evidenced through the restaurants along Fourth Street, has led to an intensified interest in adding entertainment-based venues in adjacent areas. A well-functioning theater district is an incredible draw to downtown that in turn strengthens the city’s identity and value.

This year, a graduate student design studio from Virginia Tech’s School of Architecture & Design has taken on the challenge of enhancing downtown Winston-Salem’s Theater District. Given site and program options, the graduate students have spent their spring semester developing proposals for both individual buildings and master plan concepts.

Discover the possibilities for Winston-Salem’s urban core by attending the opening reception of Winston-Salem STUDIO Ideas for an Enhanced Theater District, an exhibition of graduate student work at the Milton Rhodes Center for the Arts.
Opening reception:
April 27th, 5:30 – 7:30pm
Womble Carlyle Gallery
Milton Rhodes Center for the Arts
Public dates of show:
April 28th – June 2nd , 2012
