Adam Shalleck, B.Arch ’89, The Shalleck Collaborative

“Designing Theatres: A Parallel Path”
Over a dedicated career as a theatre consultant, Adam Shalleck has served as a guide and bridge between performing arts and architecture.


Adam’s career took a direct route to the theatre consulting profession by way of connecting his interests and education in architecture and technical theatre. Armed with a B. Arch. from VA Tech (’89) and a license in architecture earned along the way, he spent his first 15 formative years with another major theatre consultancy where he was equally steeped in the conception and design of theatres and production systems.

Adam founded The Shalleck Collaborative in 2003, and has since worked on nearly 300 venues of all scales and types of performing arts and assembly spaces.
