tects are far from immune. If his ind ividuality is expressed on the exterior of the bui Iding, very little
damage is done as far as the theatre staff is concerned. The real trouble arises when he attacks the
interior portions.

In designing the Hopkins Center, the architect dec ided that the larger theatre shou Id have a ba Icony.
His reasoning here was guided by two principles; the
first was space. A balcony can reduce the ground
area of an auditorium by stacking the audience in
layers. The second reason was based on esthetic
grounds, prompted by a recent European trip during
wh ich he was genui ne Iy de Iighted by the 18th century
court theatres with their wrap-around balconies. The
sub-committee tried to point out that when an audience iss pi it, the number of contro I persanne lis
doubled. An audience on the main floor of the theatre
can be controlled by a sing Ie ticket -taker. Use of
the balcony demands twice this number. Threats and
entreaties coupled with the simple explanation that
the court theatre ba Icony was an 18th century arrangement dictated by the sightlines of the old wing and
. drop perspective settings then in use, which even in
their own day really didn't fill the bill,were useless.
We have a balcony and that balcony has entrances
on two sides, which triples the control problem.
However, to do the architect justice, he did listen
with fair attention and acceded to many of the pleadings of the committees. Yet every architect must
feel that his esthetic judgment must outweigh all
committee judgment. During those times, whenever it
seemed vital, the committee respectfully disagreed
and ag itated hopefu Ily on the propos it ion that the
squeaking wheel eventually gets the grease.

FLOOR

There were differences on gridiron heights (and this
was not only with the architect: many of the faculty
and townspeople got into this act), and a fairly
decent hassle over the form of the small theatre. All
involved give, compromise, or take. One small example may suffice to explain the relations that
obtained between the planning parties. Finally the
group decided that the form of the arena stage was
to be a large rectang Ie sunk a pprox imate Iy a foot
below the ramped seats arranged on three sides of
it. This rectangle measured 16 x 28 feet and along
the remaining side lay the stage for proscenium
production. Working drawings of this space arrange-
