Founded in 1989, the mission of Oklahoma Contemporary is to keep art accessible, offering free exhibits, art camps and classes for local youth, as well as performances, lectures, adult classes, and workshops. This project includes a 301-seat black box theater and dance studio. Alvine Engineering was contracted to assist in relocating the center from State Fair Park into a new 54,000-square-foot building in downtown Oklahoma City.Project highlights:
- The mechanical and electrical systems are being designed with a focus on energy efficiency and climate control.
- The building will have a specialized heating, cooling, and fire protection systems to provide precise temperature and humidity control to minimize damage to displays.
- LED track lighting will integrate with the exposed structure design and will have high color rendition to accurately model color within the exhibition and gallery spaces.
