The Brooklyn Academy of Music’s Fisher Building is a new model for the 21st-century performing arts center, with an intimate and flexible non-proscenium performance space for both emerging and established artists. Akustiks completed the audio video design for the Judith and Alan Fishman Space, a flexible 250-seat theater, the Rita K. Hillman Studio which serves as a rehearsal space or a place to develop new works and the Max Leavitt Theater Workshop which is a space used by the BAM Education and Humanities programs. This 40,000 square-foot seven story tall building is LEED Gold Certified and opened on September 6, 2012.
