ECO Cladding Fiber Cement Rainscreen Vci.40 Subframing Cladding System

Alice Tully Hall - Juilliard School, Manhattan, NY

The re-design of the Alice Tully Hall by FX FOWLE Architects in collaboration with Diller Scofidio + Renfro aimed to transform the Juilliard School’s premier performance venue at Lincoln Center into a beautiful and approachable music venue with a recognizable building identity. Hidden underneath the Juilliard School, the design involved revealing the Hall’s unique outer shell of natural stone and large format fiber cement rainscreen panels. The sloped underside of Juilliard’s expansion serves as an eye-catching canopy framing the hall, its expanded lobby, and box office. The design team utilized an engineered Alpha Vci.40 concealed anchor subframing system for the large format fiber cement panels for this dramatic soffit detail. ECO Cladding’s concealed anchor system was able to meet all of the critical design requirements for the project including dead loads and wind loads, providing a high-performance subframing solution for the long-term.​
