位于美国密苏里州Kansas市中心的Kauffman中心由舞台剧院、音乐厅和宴会厅组成,是城市和区域社会、教育、经济活力的催化剂。正式开放式后的中心是美国技术和建筑最先进的表演艺术空间,中心能够让表演者和常驻公司进行更复杂的表演,鼓励跨学科合作并促进公众交流

Composed of a proscenium theater, concert hall, and banquet hall, and located in downtown Kansas City, MO, the Kauffman Center will serve as a catalyst for social, educational, and economic vitality in the city and the region. When it opens, the Center will be the most technically and architecturally advanced performing arts space in the nation, and will enable its presenters and resident companies to stage more sophisticated work, encourage interdisciplinary collaboration, and foster the cross- fertilization of audiences.

该综合体的围护结构是由一系列起伏的垂直圆形部分组成的,建筑北部包含剧场舞台、音乐厅和实验剧场。随着圆形结构的升高,它们为建筑创造了一个相互分离,略微弯曲的冠状形态。从北部的顶峰开始,屋顶沿着光缆、金属和玻璃构成的弧线几何形体向南部下降。屋顶与向外倾斜的曲面玻璃幕墙相交,形成一个朝南的门厅。玻璃门厅屋顶的拉力由一系列锚固在入口平台上的缆绳所抵消。弯曲、分段的北部墙面被银色不锈钢覆盖,酸蚀处理过的石灰色预制混凝土垂直墙将它们间隔开。

The enveloping structure of the complex is a series of undulating, vertical segments of a circle forming the northern container of the theater’s stage, concert hall, and experimental theater. As these elements ascend, they create a segmented, gently curving crown to the building. From this crest, the roof descends in a curve following the toroidal geometry of light cables, metal and glass toward the south. The roof intersects with an outwardly inclined and curved glass wall, which contains the foyer with a southern view. The tensile forces of the suspended glass foyer roof are counteracted by a series of cables tying down the structure to anchors at the entrance terrace. The curved, segmented northern walls are sheathed in silvery stainless steel and punctuated by acid-etched, limestone-colored, precast concrete perpendicular walls.

从表演厅到门厅,屋顶由不锈钢变为玻璃。玻璃外壳使人们能够看到天空和天际线。夜晚,从室外看,玻璃消失了,露出剧院戏剧性的立面和公共区域内的活动。剧院墙面采用石膏板并形成了连续曲线堆叠的看台,大厅酒吧的雕塑外型在玻璃结构中清晰可见。

The roof is stainless steel over the performing halls, changing to glass over the foyers. The glass enclosure opens the foyer to dramatic views of the sky and skyline. At night, seen from the exterior, the glazing disappears and reveals the dramatically lit theater facades and activity within the public areas. The theater facades are clad in veneer plaster forming continuous curved, stacked balconies. The lobby bars form sculptural shapes visible under the glass structure.
