Room acoustics, AV systems design, and mechanical noise consulting services for this 7,000-seat outdoor performance space. Overlooking a lake, and nestled within a mature forest, the Pavilion is host to the North Carolina Symphony Orchestra and a popular summer music series. The most striking aspect of the new structure is the glass canopy system, which supports on-stage communication and performance. It also serves as the technical level for lighting and sound systems, which are suspended within a tension wire grid system. The audio system is located along the front edge of the overhead canopy, with delay clusters serving the lawn seating and VIP seating area.
