Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts

Huge cultural complex (opened 1971) in Washington, D.C., with a total of six stages, designed by Edward Durell Stone.

The complex, surfaced in marble, makes use of the ornamental facade screens for which the architect was known. The three main theaters are entered from the Grand Foyer, which faces the Potomac River. The Concert Hall, the largest auditorium, has been designated a national monument; its acoustics are considered exceptional, and its embossed ceiling and crystal chandeliers have been much admired.
