Studio T+L's goal when working with educational institutions is to design a theatre that is appropriate for the students and faculty it will serve. As theatre professionals ourselves, we know how theatre is made. We understand how theatre systems operate. Most of our team teaches, or has taught, theatre at the college level. We bring this background to each project, while listening to the faculty and administration to understand their specific needs. This is especially important when technical theatre and design are part of the curriculum. We then set out to design a theatre and theatre systems that are appropriate to the educational and artistic goals of the institution and its faculty. When we are discussing the design of appropriate systems, important questions include:
The answers to these and other questions guide us in determining the appropriate systems.
Once common question is, "Who hires the theatre planner?" Our relationship with the owner and the project team can take one of three forms.
Regardless of the contract, it is important to note that we do not work in a vacuum. We believe that design is as much a process, requiring the active involvement of the owner and design team, as it is a product delivered at the end of construction. The development and progress of our work is dependent on input and steady collaboration with the design team, owner, and users.
We also have a FAQ about theatre planning here.
