Northrop Transformed

February 14, 2015 - January 3, 2016


In April 2014, the 85-year-old Northrop Memorial Auditorium was reborn with a grand reopening and celebration. However, its dramatic transformation took place largely out of sight of the public. This exhibition will reveal the heroic work by the design team led by HGA Architects and Engineers to accomplish this effort, highlighting Northrop's history and its future as a premier location for performance and academics and as a vibrant building at the center of campus life.

Guest Curators: Jim Moore, ASsociate Vice President, HGA; Tim Carl, Design Principal, HGA; In Kind Sponsor: HGA Architects and Engineers
