Carnegie Mellon University, Tepper School of Business

Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA

A flat-floored event space outfitted with retractable seating and high-end wooden finishes, this new auditorium realizes Carnegie Mellon University’s vision of encouraging collaborative engagement in a flexible space that supports innovation. This 380-seat auditorium leaves space for additional loose seating and allows Carnegie Mellon faculty the ability to divide the room into independent and intimate spaces. The multi-functional room can host lectures, cocktail parties, conferences, amplified performances, and banquets—even multiple events simultaneously. The auditorium is housed inside the new 305,000 square foot, LEED Gold-certified Tepper Quadrangle.
