Designed in conjunction with the new LEED Platinum Bank of America Tower at One Bryant Park (New York City), Henry Miller’s Theater will be the first new Broadway theater to open in more than 20 years and the first sustainably designed Broadway house. Energy-efficient fluorescent, metal halide and halogen light sources are used to create a warm, comfortable interior environment and are linked to an automated lighting control system to reduce energy consumption over time. Salvaged architectural artifacts, such as doors and column capitals, from the original theater are highlighted with halogen spots in the new design, creating a link between the modern design and the theater’s past.
