Irving Music Factory

Drawing inspiration from the nearby Irving Convention Center, O’Brien designed an entertainment center that would seamlessly fit into the proposed site. Using brick, perforated panels, and a mixture of super graphics, an environment was conceived to house a large indoor/outdoor performance hall along with an attached retail component. Smaller, outdoor performing stages scattered within the retail component were placed for outdoor performances, with the possibility of use for a large music festival.
