The Prattsville Art Center will be the new cultural hub for the town of Prattsville, New York, and surrounding area, bringing together selected artists with residents of the historic Catskills town which was severely damaged by Hurricane Irene in 2011. The project consists of restoring a 2,000 sq-ft historic building damaged by the flood in addition to building a new one housing artist residencies and workshops. The main focus of the new building is providing flexibility and usability for both interior and exterior spaces in order to host different activities in the center simultaneously. It also sets the goal to design a high-performance building for energy efficiency and incorporate sustainable systems. Apart from its cultural mission, another goal of the center is to empower Prattsville to develop and implement recovery plans for future weather disasters.
