Buddy Holly Hall represents a city redefining itself through collaborative design and a community-funded commitment to the arts. The architecture embodies the physical and cultural landscape of West Texas and is the largest venue dedicated to the performing arts in the region. Anchoring Lubbock’s arts and culture district, the Hall is a collection of approaches to performance, including a flexible four-story lobby, two signature theaters, a multipurpose rehearsal space and an outdoor amphitheatre—a landmark destination that integrates local arts institutions into daily city life.
