The Murray Arts Center: Two Firms, Two Audiences, One Building 11.08 AIA Architect
By: Zach Mortice, Associate Editor
Randall-Paulson Architects and Walters-Storyk Design Group share an arts venue outside Atlanta
How do you...design a private school performing arts center that doubles as a community arts venue?
Summary: The Murray Arts Center on the campus of Mount Paran Christian School functions as a performance arts venue for the school and for the surrounding community. To serve both of these communities simultaneously, it separates programs by floor level and contains flexible, multipurpose performance facilities. WSDG designed the facilities’ acoustic systems, and Randall-Paulson Architects worked on the building’s overall design, in a contextual, relaxed Collegiate Gothic style.
