Lincoln Center Alice Tully Hall

Location: New York, NY, USA
Type Concert Hall
Team Diller Scofido + Renfro, FxFowle, ARUP NY, Turner Construction


Architects Diller Scofidio + Renfro (DS + R) in collaboration with FXFowle Architects designed the renovation of Alice Tully Hall in Lincoln Center. The new concert hall interior features a translucent, curved wood veneer wall panel system which is lit from behind for a glowing interior. The project required using advanced materials for this wall system in an existing space with tight tolerances under a strict deadline.

GT's initial role was to capture the architectural design intent of the interior while meeting fabrication constraints. GT created a 3D model in Digital Project which included interdependent systems influencing the construction of the wood panels, such as steel supports, theater rigging equipment, and integral MEP systems.

Working with Architectural Woodwork Industries, consultant for the wood panels during the design development, GT developed a finish surface model for the interior panels which went directly to fabrication.

During the construction phase, GT integrated 3D models from subcontractors and provided a pre-build digital view of the project, aiding design of complicated systems such as the piping systems layout. These systems were then analyzed for clearance and clash interference. GT used the 3D Digital Project model to analyze design phase assumptions on existing conditions. GT ensured panels were fabricated to fit precisely.
