The Amphitheatre at Clifton Forge, VA has opened its doors (or should we say, out-doors?). TCC’s Josh Allen served as theatre consultant to the students of Virginia Tech’s design/buildLAB. The theatre is situated creekside, on a piece of property adjacent to the Historic Masonic Theatre (another TCC project currently in design), in rural Clifton Forge, VA, in the heart of Virginia’s Blue Ridge Mountains.
For $150,000.00, the architecture students of design/buildLAB designed, gathered repurposed materials, and built the venue themselves (with generous donations from local and entertainment industry suppliers, contractors, and designers.) The site was once home to an old tire warehouse, which was dismantled, and and repurposed for both this project and to build a local farmers market.

You can also watch a nifty time-lapse video of the construction below.
