Villanova University, Performing Arts Centre | Blog

We first came across the opportunity of working with Villanova University when we met Daniela Holt Voith and her team at VMA in Philadelphia in November 2017.

VMA were the architect of record for the new-build RAMSA-designed Performing Arts Centre (PAC) on campus at Villanova University., Daniela recognised that we might have something to offer and offered us the opportunity to present our ideas to the client.

The entrance comprised a large open quadrant lobby area, with smaller interval spaces on the upper levels. Without a specific brief to work to the team at Luke Hughes could see that there really was nowhere in the plan for people to meet or wait for others to join them before, during or after performances.
