Baton Rouge Performing Arts Theater to get $18.1M makeover
Post Architects teamed up with HMS Architects of New Orleans to redesign the theater. “The new design of the theater focuses on improving the patron experiences while maintaining the warm sound qualities that the theater is famous for,” says architect Skipper Post.
"The upgrades to the Riverfront Plaza dovetails with another nearby riverfront project-the installation of shade sail structures at the end of the dock. The $280,000 project, also part of the Riverfront Master Plan, will provide much-needed shade along the iconic dock, frequented by river cruise ships.
Construction on the shade sails, which were designed by Post Architects, will begin this summer and should be completed by August."
