在克里夫兰著名的文化机构所簇拥的Wade Oval区,建筑师将国家级的历史犹太教堂Temple-Tifereth Israel改建为凯斯西储大学(Case Western Reserve University)的一个新多功能表演艺术中心。该中心可提供1100个座位,是校园内最大的聚会场所,能够满足音乐会、节日庆典和演讲活动的需要。

Located in Wade Oval, among Cleveland’s most respected cultural institutions, a nationally registered historic synagogue, the Temple-Tifereth Israel, is repurposed as a new multi-disciplinary performing arts center for Case Western Reserve University. The 1,100-seat venue is the largest gathering space on campus and is used for a variety of ensembles, festivals and lectures.

Through ingenuity, collaboration, and respect for the historic 92-year-old building, the design team successfully resurrected a beloved but often unused facility into a nexus of culture, education, and student life. The project required a significant preservation component to uncover the beauty of many historic details, including the stained glass clerestory, the Guastavino tiled vaulted dome, marble corridors, and wood pews, as well as the limestone facade.

A consistent language of craft is found in the synagogue, celebrating the tradition of building and of those who built it almost a century ago. The new insertions, primarily the glass and steel canopy, are conceived to complement this character with thin structural ribs and the transparency of the glass. This carefully detailed, custom fabrication provides continuous views through to the original vaulted dome, while perfecting the necessary acoustics for performance. These new elements are crafted to be complementary and resonate with the historic character.
