The Lynn Wyatt Square for the Performing Arts is a new cultural venue and landmark in Downtown Houston’s Theater District. Formerly known as Jones Plaza, RIOS’ design transforms the plaza as a hub for a more interconnected, accessible, and inclusive green space in Downtown Houston, providing a vibrant green heart for Houstonians and visitors to experience and celebrate the arts through year-round public programming such as music, theater, dance, and opera, operated by Houston First Corporation. Timberlyne followed the inspiration by designing a free-flowing roof structure with timber construction — featuring glulam primary beams and secondary purlins, which reduces the building’s lifetime carbon footprint compared to steel. Its lightweight beams are effective for long spans, creating a column-free central dining space with a view of the exposed structure above.
