University of Florida Strategic Development Plan

Gainesville, Florida
Client: University of Florida

The project team became fully immersed in the campus and community, understanding not only strengths, challenges, and opportunities, but also inner workings and relationships. The team — with expertise in urban design, real estate, transportation, campus planning, and strategic thinking — interviewed over 200 stakeholders and conducted a public symposium in which practitioners from peer institutions engaged in community conversations about experience and lessons learned.”

Cutler Majestic Theatre

Cutler Majestic Theatre

Boston, Massachusetts
Client: Emerson College

Project Description

  • Originally built in 1903, this restored Beaux-Arts theatre is now both a high point for Boston theatergoers and a learning tool for Emerson students.
  • The painstaking restoration and renovation of the 26,000-sf theatre included researching the original palette; replicating seats, velvet curtains, and light fixtures; and re-creating custom wall coverings, paintings, and period carpeting.
  • Now a 21st-century theatre inside a 20th-century historic landmark, the modernized theatre includes upgraded infrastructure and theatre systems, the fully restored second balcony, expanded lobbies and seating capacity, and improved audience amenities.
