The Houston Ballet Center for Dance, designed by Gensler, was conceived with the mandate of fostering interaction between students, staff, and administration. Gensler designed the center with an array of different spaces where the different groups could interact.

The exterior of the Houston Ballet Center for Dance is a play of texture and materials. A glass facade dominates the side of the building that’s adjacent to the nearby highway. Each of the studio spaces within the Houston Ballet Center Dance was designed to receive exposure to natural light.

The Center’s artistic director states that: “The building will be an icon for the art of dance nationally and internationally.” The Ballet Center is truly an innovative and remarkable culture nod in Houston.
