The theater building’s demolition began in mid-December, and it didn’t take long for machinery to make key progress. It’s the first step in a project that will transform experiences for theater and dance students at Macalester—including creating nine much-needed classrooms for general campus use, linking the arts and sciences through a new skyway to Olin-Rice, adding elevator access, and incorporating updated safety features. “Every choice in the building is geared toward creating the best possible learning environment,” says department chair Cláudia Tatinge Nascimento. By June 2018, the structure will be enclosed again, and the building is scheduled to open in time for spring semester classes in January 2019. See the full story here:
