In my recent visit to Dallas Center for the Performing Arts under construction, by the way of KRob, I saw Wyly Theatre by REX/OMA. I photographed REX/OMA's beautifully executed models of the project and the building in progress, ready for its tube like variegated aluminum extrusion screen, in transit from Argentina. The building design is an amalgamation of smaller and larger OMA projects and it is very complex in its seemingly simple rectangular form.
"The Dee and Charles Wyly Theatre will be one of the world's most innovative theatre facilities. The 12-level building will feature a groundbreaking design with an unprecedented "stacked," vertically organized facility that completely rethinks the traditional form of theatre. The Wyly Theatre was designed by REX/OMA, Joshua Prince-Ramus (partner in charge) and Pritzker Prize-winning architect Rem Koolhaas."
