Hilde Performance Center – Plymouth, MN
The creation of a visually pleasing exterior performance space that augments the landscape while providing a superior acoustical environment drove the design of the Hilde Performance Center. The center, which houses a performance by the Minnesota Orchestra every year, is a gift from Jayne and Al Hilde, Jr. to the city of Plymouth, MN. This $1 million open-air stage will also supports local theatrical and musical productions. The structure consists of a raised stage flanked by support wings, sheltered by an undulating roof which is supported by a framework of steel tubes.
