Project spotlight.


In 2017, Texas Tech University’s nationally recognized College for the Visual and Performing Arts sought to unify its accredited programs in theater and dance, the school of art, and music into one best-in-class facility. The University partnered with BRW for a feasibility study, design, and renovation project to transform the Charles E Maedgen Jr Theatre, a mid-century, 7500 SF 400-seat, into the JT & Margaret Talkington Theatre.
