Barbara Antonsen Memorial Amphitheater Design Competition

Sedona, Arizona


Second Place Entry in design competition for a new amphitheater in Barbara Antonsen Memorial Park.

Amphitheater includes festival seating for 96 people plus fixed seating for 104 people plus seating for 125 additional people in the rear. Project includes Stage, Ticket/ Concession Area, Greenrooms, Public Toilets, Stage and Storage/ Utility Space. The design is based on “Natural Acoustics” which minimizes the need for electronic amplification, reducing noise spillover to surrounding neighborhoods. The project works with existing topography and retains the spectacular Sedona red rock views from the site.
