ERIC BAKER NORD PERFORMING ARTS ANNEX
Eric Baker Nord Performing Arts Annex at Oberlin College – Oberlin, OH
The Eric Baker Nord Performing Arts Annex at Oberlin College was designed by DLR Group. This one of a kind performing arts building is situated between Hall Auditorium and the Peter B. Lewis Gateway Center.
The Nord Performing Arts Annex features the Irene and Alan Wurtzel Theater, a highly adaptable performance space that can accommodate up to 300 seats. Seating can be arranged around the stage, offering opportunities for a variety of productions.

The accessible building also has a spacious lobby and second-floor gathering space, costume shop, rehearsal room, a laundry facility, updated restrooms, faculty offices, and other necessary spaces.
The Nord Performing Arts Annex and the renovated Hall Annex adjoins directly with Hall Auditorium, creating an interconnected performing arts complex. Hall Annex includes the new Kander Theater, which has replaced the Little Theater. The annex brings together these three different theaters to allow Oberlin’s theater, dance, and vocal studies programs to stage a range of productions—from student-led and experimental works to full-scale operas and plays.
The Millennium Forms Lay Flat Panel is similar to a Flat Lock panel but with an additional offset which allows panels to lay flat on the wall. This reduces the overlapping shingle or feather appearance for a more streamline appearance. On this particular project, the designing architect requested an offset on both the top and right hand side of the panel. This allowed all panels to lay flush on the all with a subtle reveal on all 4 sides of the panel. The small scale also allowed these panels to be cladded on this unique radius curved surface.
