ABC No Rio to “go green” with new building

Cross-section rendering of what ABC No Rio’s new space will look like
ABC No Rio

ABC No Rio has been slowly moving toward replacing it’s current building with a new one, and now comes word that the collective will go green as revealed in recent renderings (like the one above). A little more info from the folks behind it:

The existing building is distressed and in disrepair. In 2007, our architect and engineer determined that existing conditions would make responsible repair and renovation difficult, and not significantly less costly than new construction. Through new construction we will build dramatically improved facilities for our cultural, community and educational activities. We will:

-double the size of our gallery and performance space
-provide more efficient insulation and soundproofing
-create spaces specifically designed for our programs and events
-install an elevator and make the building wheelchair accessible
-install new energy- and water-efficient building-wide systems
-increase our capacity for alternative energy use

The space is currently bidding out construction with architect Paul Castrucci publicly revealing his proposal for the space.

There are a few interesting shows coming up on the calendar for the space, including July 28th with California X (who recently played Tommy’s Tavern) with Cop Hugger, Early Flight Home; and Punch with Living Eyes, Born Wrong and Goosebumps on August 4th.
