2012 MERIT AWARD FOR ARCHITECTURE
East Bay Center for the Performing Arts, Richmond, CA
Architect: Mark Cavagnero Associates
This community performing arts center is a nationally-recognized training and production center, dedicated to the underserved youth of the community which it serves. Located in a neighborhood known as the “Iron Triangle”, distinguished primarily for its chronic poverty and violence, the Center is a significant resource for the community and at the heart of a revitalization effort downtown. Reusing a historically-significant building, a former 1920’s dance hall, the facility has been transformed into a new urban center for music and dance.
