Beacon Film Center Proposal
Once a correctional facility, now a film center.
In collaboration with Deegan-Day Design, we developed a proposal to convert the Beacon Correctional Facility campus into a center for film production and exhibition. Beacon CF would become B:FC—Beacon Film Center. The city of Beacon and the town of Fishkill would both gain a valuable cultural magnet, a source of local employment, and a visitor draw, as well as revenue streams. Proposed in 2018, the B:FC would anchor the northeast corner of Beacon in much the way Dia:Beacon does the southwest.
