HAIF - Houston's original social media

Recommended Posts

how has that theater lived for 46 years without a fly loft? Seriously?  Wow!    (no sarcasm intended)

 

it has to be like working in a high school theater.. .you want a backdrop change, you put it on a track system and move it left and right instead of flying it in and out.

 

 

(i have only been to the Alley once- my minion Blackout borrowed some gear from me to do a show there, and I went in to check on him... they have a nice black box theater, haven't seen the main room yet)

Didn't realize this would need one. Are there renders out?

 

I had not seen any, so I was surprised as well. MarkLTD's link has these:

 

I guess whoever drew up the top one did not care for the Lancaster Hotel.

HAH!!!!  :lol:
 

Nate99, you are a wizard at digging up images.  I've gotta say, this does a pretty good job of keeping and complementing the fabric of the original facade.

Except for powerwashing the outside.  Surely they are going to do that, right? Anyone?  They can borrow mine.

 

Nope.  That's patina - sorta like how copper turns green over time.  It must be preserved to maintain the building's Brutalist authenticity.   :ph34r:

I don't understand this renovation at all. While the interior probably improved, the exterior is way worse! Still can't believe how horrible Studio Red's addition is to the building. So out of scale, such bad material choice. Add colorful LEDs to the mix and you have yourself and hot mess!

Odd, I was thinking the opposite, not necessarily that the exterior change was exactly what the space needed, but that it blends in well enough to not be a distraction, and ends up just being another element of the building. That and the lighting helps the place out at night.

I like the LED, softens the concrete. The Box on top was a poor choice.
