Alice Tully Hall

Post by msistarted on Tue Feb 08, 2011 5:57 am

Alice Tully Hall is a concert hall at the Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts in New York City. It is named for Alice Tully, a New York performer and philanthropist whose donations assisted in the construction of the hall. Tully Hall is located within the Juilliard Building, a Brutalist structure, which was designed by renowned architect Pietro Belluschi, and completed and opened in 1969. Since its opening, it has hosted numerous performances and events, including the New York Film Festival.

As part of the Lincoln Center 65th Street Development Project, the Juilliard School and Tully Hall recently underwent a major renovation and expansion by architects Diller Scofidio + Renfro and FXFOWLE, completed in 2009. The building utilizes new interior materials, state-of-the-art technologies, and updated equipment for concerts, film, theater, and dance. The expansion of the Juilliard Building created a three-story all-glass lobby and sunken plaza beneath a new, cantilevered extension, “projecting a newly visible public identity to Broadway.”[1]

What makes the Tully Hall/Juilliard expansion important are two stories: one of urban design and a re-imagining of public space, and one of creating a dialogue between Modernist and “Contemporary/Post-Modern” architecture that preserves the past while advancing new ideas in design.
