Design by LMN in association with Marmon Mok Architects, the Tobin Center for the Performing Arts opened its doors to the public today, kicking off a month-long festival of special events, beginning with a performance by the Tobin’s resident companies (symphony, ballet, opera) and culminating in a rare and intimate concert by Paul McCartney. The project transforms one of San Antonio’s beloved icons, the Municipal Auditorium, into one of the most flexible performing arts center in the nation. In addition, the design creates a new civic identity and public connection to the River Walk—the City’s centerpiece of civic identity, nightlife and festival celebration.
