Challenge
To incorporate a 250-seat lecture theatre in a multi-storey building, with minimum impact to adjacent building programs.
Solution
The 250-seat auditorium was located in the low-rise podium to reduce transfer structure requirements. The transfer was achieved with a two-storey Vierendeel truss with no cross-bracing to maximize efficiency of the program space.
