On the most significant site in New York City, The Perelman
Center will premiere works of theater, dance, music, film,
and opera, transforming Lower Manhattan into a vibrant,
global cultural heart. It is a pure form, wrapped in
translucent, veined marble, laminated within insulated glass.
The performing arts center includes three auditoria (499-,
250-, and 99-person) which can combine to form seven
additional arrangements, and a rehearsal room—all eleven
of which can adopt manifold stage-audience configurations;
flexible front- and back-of-house circulation that can create
diverse patron entry/intermission/exit processions; and (A-
Z) offices, performer support spaces, and restaurant/bar.
The keystone and final piece of the World Trade Center
master plan, The Perelman Center embraces creation and
memory with respectful individuality.
