The scoop from IMG on fashion week goers' experience at the new Lincoln Center venue this September: "Guests will enter the tented lobby through a new façade created by architectural firm Diller Scofidio + Renfro. The entrance and façade, which is 60 feet wide and 70 feet high, will be located in the corner between the Metropolitan Opera House and David H. Koch Theater. The lobby will feature sponsorship areas, digital signage and seating areas for guests. The Lincoln Center shows will feature four main venues: The Theatre, The Stage, The Studio and The Box Presentation Space. The Theatre venue, with an all-black interior, will have seating for 969 people and the option for a straight or U-shaped runway; The Stage venue, in white with gray capeting, can seat 740, with stadium-like bench seats; The Studio will be the smallest runway venue, for 369 people in its gray environment, while The Box space is designated for presentations and events, with an ability to accommodate 125 people. There is also an additional venue called The Courtyard, a glass encased outdoors space that could be used for informal presentations." [WWD]
