Compton College Visual & Performing Arts Replacement Building

Compton, CA

Black Box theater with support spaces, large and individual rehearsal rooms, piano and music computer labs, recording studios and faculty office suite.

The Black Box has the option to open to an exterior performing space and facing amphitheater through a glazed moveable wall that is otherwise blacked out.

The main interior teaching spaces open to an exterior multimedia plaza.

A dramatic trellis provides shade over outdoor spaces of interaction.

The program is divided into two separate wings to frame and define the plaza. No interior corridors, most circulation outside for a wellness connection with the outdoors.

Diagonal lines are used strategically throughout the paving to symbolize the two axes of the Campus Plan in this district of the Campus as well as to draw the users to and from the central quad.

Diagonal reveals, strategic angled walls and accent colors are used on the elevations and at the trellis to stimulate the creativity of the students.
