An innovation brought to theatre technology by the theatre designer George C. Izenour is a trans-sondant curtain, mimicking a wall, which allows halls visually to metamorphose into small or large performance spaces while retaining optimum acoustic quality in both guises. A full set of drawings and photographs of the first trans-sondant structure, in the Vern Riffe Centre for the Arts (1995), is one of the new features in the second edition of this reference guide to theatre engineering and technology.
