About The John F Kennedy Center for Performing Arts Expansion
2700 F St NW, Washington, DC
The John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts is getting bigger and better with an over $100 million expansion currently underway that is set to add three above-ground pavilions with studios, rehearsal rooms, and lecture halls.
There will also be a cafe/bistro, classrooms, and an outdoor wall for video presentations. This is the institution’s first new construction project since it first opened in 1971.
The pavilions will include a “Welcome Pavilion” for visitor services, a “Skylight Pavilion” that will overlook the landscape, and a “River Pavilion” that will overlook the Potomac River. The architecture firm behind these new spaces is Steven Holl Architects.
