The Ordway’s undulating ceiling created by Aaron Carlson Corp.
Next time you attend a performance at the new, beautifully renovated Ordway Center Concert Hall, tilt back in your seat to take in the ceiling. Gracefully undulating and designed to provide state-of-the-art acoustics, the wavy panels of mahogany-stained dowels give the space an intimacy and acoustic quality that have inspired comparisons to some of the world’s greatest music venues. And know that the exquisite craftsmanship on display was executed by Aaron Carlson Corp., one of the oldest architectural woodworking companies in Minneapolis. Established in 1891, Aaron Carlson’s craftsmanship is represented in the White House, Mayo Clinic, Orchestra Hall, the Guthrie Theater, and the New York Metropolitan Museum of Modern Art—as well as local residences. Discerning homeowners from Summit Avenue to Minnetonka to Eden Prairie showcase the company’s work. Complete residential packages include custom wall paneling, millwork, and furniture, all unified by a common vision. For more information, see aaroncarlson.com.
