Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater

New York, NY

GMS served as both the structural engineer and façade consultant for the new transparent, elegant building for the home for the Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater, the largest facility devoted to dance in the United States. From the street the building is a stage due to the almost exclusively glass facades which allow neighbors and pedestrians an unobstructed view of the large open studios and inviting the community to be involved with the dance culture.
