GREEN LINE ARTS CENTER
Green Line Performing Arts Center is located at 55th Street and the Green Line elevated train, in Chicago’s Washington Park neighborhood. It’s goal is to introduce live theater into a community that is already supporting an arts incubator, coffee shop and gallery. It will be accessible for neighborhood performance groups as well as casting a city-wide net for small companies needing space to perform or rehearse. The dark brick building has institutional substance of a performing arts center. The patterned, intermittent brick textures soften the building and welcome exploration. The lobby literally opens to the adjacent landscape, soon to be developed as a community park. The building includes an 82-seat end-stage theater, a stage-sized rehearsal room, and well-appointed actor support facilities.

Location: Chicago, Illinois.
