The amphitheater is FAMU’s principle exterior performance and assembly place for students. Exterior performance spaces to date have been squeezed between campus buildings in an area known as the “Set.” The conditions have proven inadequate for both individual and group performances, speeches and presentations. FAMU charged GRC with designing an amphitheater to address this need. The amphitheater is located in the heart of FAMU’s campus on the site of the Pentaplex, a complex of dormitories which are currently being demolished.
