MARC 519. Jake Decker. “Ozarks Jubilee Music Hall.” Springfield, Missouri. Spring 2020. Bruce Moore.
The Ozarks Jubilee Music Hall renews the legacy of country music shows characteristic of mid-20th century Springfield. The site is centrally located within a proposed municipal network of parks and is bordered by two roadways, ensuring accessibility and visibility. The essential Jubilee/audience relationship is emphasized via the Music Hall’s relationship to the urban fabric, with grid alignments, and via its attachment to the Ozark Meadows urban nature trail. A stand-alone residential volume interacts with Main Street and serves as a scale bridge between the Music Hall and the city, while passive systems throughout the design control seasonal changes of winds and sunlight.
