Silman is providing structural engineering services for this 138-foot-tall steel-framed building in collaboration with Magnusson Klemencic Associates (MKA). The Ronald O. Perelman Performing Arts Center at the World Trade Center will serve as a physical anchor to New York City’s downtown arts communities. MKA is responsible for the cube-shaped theater’s outer shell, while Silman is responsible for the design of the acoustically isolated interior theaters as well as construction administration services.

A monumental entrance staircase, slotted into the cube’s western corner, will lead up to the main level with a bar and cafe.

The building’s three theaters, ranging in capacity from 100 to 500 seats, will be able to host simultaneous productions or be combined into larger venues by opening oversized acoustic doors. The acoustic isolation requirements required close coordination between the structural, MEP, architecture, and theater design teams and all trades on site. Other spaces will also include rehearsal rooms and administrative offices.
