MCF Architects was tasked with the renovation of the main lecture hall and lobby in the David Lawrence Lecture Hall at the University of Pittsburgh. In addition to the renovation of the lecture hall and lobby, MCF was also tasked with the construction of a new set of classrooms on the 2nd floor level.

The existing lecture hall was circular in shape and very outdated. The client requested that the lecture hall be divided into two, with one half furnished with tables and chairs, and the other half with auditorium seating. The rooms would be entirely updated with all new finishes, acoustic treatments, and AV equipment.

I was tasked with aiding in the schematic design of the two new lecture halls and the classrooms, as well as the design of the lobby. I produced drawings and renderings to illustrate the design concepts and participated in client meetings to present the work. Later in the process I aided the senior architect with the construction document set.
