The Los Alamos Civic Center is envisioned to be the centerpiece of community and cultural activity for the City of Los Alamos. It has the potential to be a key anchor for downtown revitalization, a focus for theatre/performance, recreational, leisure and community activities. As well, the Civic Center is designed to provide a venue for conferences, trade exhibitions and educational activities sponsored by the County and Los Alamos National Laboratories.
The design solution provides a 700-seat performance theater (PAC) with a 350-seat community hall (CUB). These functions are enhanced by a lively café and a highly visible public access Television Studio, both located on the corner of 20th Street and Central, connected to the PAC/CUB building by a spacious outdoor terrace that provides dramatic views of Ashley Pond and the distant mountains.
