upon entering the building, a brightly lit foyer serves as a reception space that allows visitors to congregate before making their way to one of the site’s lecture halls. the larger auditorium, which contains 210 fixed seats, can be expanded to also include the two smaller rooms at its rear, meaning that a total of 410 people can be accommodated at once. owing to its simple steel frame construction, the single storey design took only eight months to complete.
