MACALESTER COLLEGE THEATRE BUILDING
SAINT PAUL, MN
Macalester College long needed a new theatre building, and after demolishing the old one, the college set out on a $32 million dollar replacement. The college’s eight-year construction process has completely renovated their music and art buildings, and now includes a new theatre building. These renovations will not only improve the arts facilities, but also more and better classroom space — a need made more acute by steadily rising enrollment.
MG McGrath worked with McGough Construction and HGA Architects on the exterior façade of the new theater project at Macalester College. We provided a custom exterior MG F-Seam panel system fabricated from aluminum with a custom black anodized finish, along with a McGrath aluminum composite panel system in a similar custom black anodized finish. We also provided a custom fabricated .125 aluminum curved panel with a custom perforation pattern in a brass anodized finish for the feature wall on the exterior façade.
