The World Trade Center Complex's Performing Arts Center has been in the works for years and now, with a massive donation from billionaire philanthropist Ronald O. Perelman, the project has made some major steps towards realization. The first of these is the selection of a concept, with architecture firm REX winning the bid thanks to its captivating translucent marble cube design.

The REX-built Ronald O. Perelman Performing Arts Center will be built at the World Trade Center complex, adjacent to the 9/11 Museum and memorial. Its veined marble facade will present a stately and austere image during the day and it will use laminated glass to be able to light up in a soft yellow glow at night. The building will house three auditoria of 100, 250 and 500 seats.
