Dr. P Phillips Orlando Performing Arts Center [Phase 2 Under Construction]

Recommended Posts


I think it should all just be kept in a single thread, all that has to be done is modify the title of this thread, change the bracketed portion to [Phase 2 under construction].

I agree. No need to make a whole new thread. After all, this is still the same building. They're just finishing it with phase two. Technically the building is still not completed right now.

drove by there.  their basement is pretty deep.  the original depth they dug to has doubled in depth the past few months; it steps down.

I searched for the section view drawings, and can't come up with them.  If I remember correctly (going back almost a decade now) there is a mechanism to store seating under the floor of the space when it converts to a flat-floor configuration. That may be what the extra depth is for.

Watching Rick Steve's Europe on PBS. This episode he's in Copenhagen. He began the show with a boat ride down the city's main canal and past the Copenhagen Opera House. 

I couldn't help but notice a certain similarity...

....to another, somewhat newer and much more local performing arts venue.

Possibly the source of inspiration for DPAC?

Copenhagen Opera House building itself is probably two times the size of Orlando and way nicer for a cheaper price.

Whether your claims are accurate or not, my comment had to do with the obvious similarities in overall appearance.

I think the case could be made that the designer of DPAC was at least moderately influenced by Copenhagen's opera house.

Can someone much smarter than myself explain what is going on here? They look like rotted away beams but I would assume they are all brand new going in there.

I was thinking the same thing. 

Maybethey will put round or square forms around each then pour more concrete around them.

Interesting update from fellow UPer Mark Baratelli at Daily City about the proposed "Magnolia Hotel" across the street from DPAC:

Wow!  I really hope this gets built.  Wow.  What an addition this would be to that area...  What an impact this would have.
