Description
This tour presents a case study of the Austin Independent School District’s new central Performing Arts Center (PAC), designed by Pfluger Architects in association with Miró Rivera Architects. Located at the Mueller airport redevelopment, the AISD PAC is the first district­-wide fine arts facility in the school district’s 134­-year history. Approved via special bond election, the state­-of­-the-­art venue was completed on time and below budget (under $350/sf), and serves more than 84,000 K­-12 students at 129 schools. Instead of a sprawling suburban site, the PAC is located in a former airport that is being transformed into a vibrant, pedestrian­-oriented community in the heart of Austin.
