PHOTO CALL: ANT Designs for WTC Site Theatre Complex Unveiled

News   PHOTO CALL: ANT Designs for WTC Site Theatre Complex Unveiled The proposed American National Theatre, headed by actor Sean Cullen, has released the architectural designs for its home on the site of the World Trade Center, should its submission be approved.

The building was designed by Richard Olcott, through a collaboration between the ANT, Olcott, and Steve Friedlander of Auerbach.Pollock.Friedlander. Olcott himself is a design partner in Polshek Partnership Architects. Friedlander has been noted as saying that the design could be transfered to another location, should ANT not receive approval to house itself at the World Trade Center site, their home of choice. The ANT aims to build a complex housing three-theatres (of 1,000, 700, and 400 seats) in which a 15-play season, 5 productions in each space, would be presented each year. ANT would not produce new work, instead an advisory board would select the 15 best regional productions and transfer them to the WTC site, in essence becoming a showcase for the best of American theatre.
