UChicago Architecture: The Architectural Vision Behind the Logan Center for the Arts


Through the collaborative work of our faculty, students, and professional arts organizations, we are now forging an integrative model that is unique among our peer institutions. Scholars, practicing artists, and students are crafting new curricular, co-curricular, and public programs that productively combine research, teaching, and creative expression. The David and Reva Logan Center for the Arts will add luster to the university’s already rich history of groundbreaking artistic exploration and accomplishment, and become a model of its kind on the national stage.

—Larry Norman, Deputy Provost for the Arts


The Floorplans

The 184,000-square-foot building houses playwrights and painters, musicians and filmmakers, dancers and sculptors. Technically-sophisticated studios, media labs and performance spaces take advantage of natural light and meet the exacting demands of today’s modes of artistic expression and the technical complexities of tomorrow’s emerging forms.

Highlights of the Center include:

  • Studio/classrooms, individual studios, and exhibition space for the visual arts
  • Rehearsal and shop areas as well as black-box theaters and proscenium venues for theatrical production and performance-related teaching
  • A 474-seat performance venue for music and performance with exceptional acoustics and film screening capacity
  • Individual music practice and ensemble rehearsal rooms
  • A film vault and a lecture/film screening hall
  • A media center that will include multi media editing labs, digital classroom, and film production studios
  • State-of-the-art media classrooms
  • A gallery to show the work of our faculty, students, and visiting artists
  • Café
  • Outdoor courtyard and performance areas
  • Tower with 9th-floor performance penthouse
