Newcastle University commissioned FaulknerBrowns to design a new 400 seat lecture theatre in front of the existing Medical School entrance whilst at the same time enhance the entrance to allow as many as 1000 students to enter the building at peak periods.
It was important that the new lecture theatre complimented the new Psychology Department. The solution we developed responded to this challenge by raising the new lecture theatre pod on a series of tree like structural supports thereby creating dramatic new entrance. Best practice combined with the latest technology help to create a world class lecturing environment. A parabolic seating rake ensures that viewing angles are optimised, and a back projection system provides an up to the minute method of delivering high clarity multi-media display.
