Bosque School Arts Center


The Peggy Ann Findlay Arts Center is a 12,000 square foot addition to the Bosque School campus located in Albuquerque. The Arts Center includes a black-box theater, music studio, offices, fine arts classrooms and a post performance lobby. The southeast walls of the lobby are fully glazed and orient to the school's riverside setting. An exterior, perforated metal screen serves as a backdrop for outdoor performances and will provide shading for the music school addition to be built in a future phase.

With the exception of the theater, the building is fully daylit. Daylighting strategies include skylights, south-east facing glazing in the lobby and large window areas in the art studios.

The curved concrete block walls of the theatre and the exposed steel canopies give the Art Center a unique appearance while continuing the architectural vocabulary of existing campus buildings.
