Bernstein Campus Visitor Experience Improvements

When Ozawa Hall was built, the number of visitors who today use the Bernstein Campus could not have been anticipated. The amenities in that area were intended for many fewer visitors than the area now hosts, especially considering the potential for far more attendance with the introduction of the Tanglewood Learning Institute and the Linde Center for Music and Learning.

With the goal of making the Bernstein Campus more welcoming and useable for guests, the BSO will move the Ozawa Hall box office and entrance gate to enhance the sense of arrival — improving sight lines to the Ozawa Lawn upon entering the grounds. In addition, the BSO will expand restroom capacity for Ozawa Hall visitors. Overall, the area will become more efficient and appealing for guests, will better serve growing audiences, and will encourage productive, social, community-oriented gathering on the Bernstein Campus.
