The Green Valley Performing Arts and Adult Learning Center is designed to convene with the landscape. Sited at the head of a small arroyo, the building incorporates expansive views of the mountains beyond while massive concrete forms mimic the jagged horizon. These forms protect a shaded courtyard from the prevailing southwest winds, encouraging interaction between classes as students spill out from the adjacent Learning Center. Not only will the new building become a resource for students, but it also creates performance and educational spaces lacking in Green Valley. The new center is anticipated to become the center of community cultural life. New classrooms, computer rooms, and a dance/music/practice room have already been constructed while the final build-out will incorporate a state-of-the-art auditorium and other smaller, flexible performing spaces.
