Woodruff Arts Center
Architect: Renzo Piano Building Workshop and Bergmeyer Associates
The Woodruff Arts Center is a visual and performing arts center located in Atlanta, Georgia. The center houses three not-for-profit arts divisions on one campus. Opened in 1968, the center is home to the Alliance Theatre, the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra, and the High Museum of Art.
As part of a significant remodel, a number of special event and hospitality spaces were added to accommodate future growth. A new restaurant and entertainment area required a number of custom metal furnishings from steel, stainless steel and aluminum. Working in conjunction with M.B.Wellington, a premiere supplier of custom resin panels, ELEMENT provided a number of high quality, precision finished items for various applications.
