Strand Theater 2.0 Renderings Revealed

Details about the renovation of the Strand Theater in the BAM Cultural District were released in the summer of 2008 but these are the first renderings we’ve seen of the $17 million project. They come via a reader from the website of Leeser Architecture. The finished product will be about 20,000 square larger than the existing space and house two local non-profits, BRIC Arts and Urban Glass. There will be a new theatre, black box studio and art gallery in addition to classrooms and a media viewing space. When it was originally announced a completion date of next year was forecast but we have no idea if that’s on track.

  • Leeser is a very exciting architect. Did the American Museum of the Moving Image upgrade and much more. Due to timing of City funding, won’t be done next year. Key is new theater for the area, much better facility for Urban Glass, gallery space and much more. BRIC House.

  • sounds great! urban glass is a great outfit, super glassworking classes (learn to blow glass or make a neon sign) with wonderful artisans. glad to hear that they are getting an improved space.

  • They’re going to have a Hot Shop in this building? Furnaces, Glory Holes and Annealers?! That’s a big investment and expensive to operate.

    (And not *that* kind of glory hole, DIBS… those are free.)
