Rock Hall of Fame Reveals Plan for Expansion

The $100 million project would add more programming space and a new band shell and renovate the Rock Hall’s original I.M. Pei building in Cleveland. The Rock Hall announced that the architecture firm PAU will lead the project, which will bring 50,000 square feet of programming space and a new band shell overlooking the shores of Lake Erie. The lighting of the addition and the grounds, like the best stage lighting which enhances not upstages the performance, was conceived by L’Observatoire to be electrifying, warming Cleveland’s cold winters, cloudy skies, and early dusk with the glow of the beat. https://www.nytimes.com
