This comprehensive renovation of an existing 200-seat lecture hall was prompted by an anonymous donor interested in providing the Bloomberg School of Public Health an improved academic auditorium that could also serve as a venue for intimate musical recitals and theatrical performances. The project required the removal of all existing interior construction except for the essential existing building structure. New work included the installation of a sloped, raised floor system with new seating and improved sightlines, acoustically articulated mahogany wall panels, an acoustical perforated metal ceiling, new heating and cooling systems, and new audio-visual and data systems to support a broad range of instructional, presentation and performance capabilities. The project was designed and built on an accelerated schedule, to coincide with the retirement of the school's dean and the dedication of the auditorium in his name.
