Harvard Medical School
MDS has designed several renovations to classrooms and tiered lecture halls at Harvard Medical School (HMS). The primary goal for these renovations was to modernize teaching environments and upgrade A/V systems with new standards that are being applied to all classrooms across the HMS campus.
Goldenson 122 is a tiered lecture hall used by the Neurobiology Department. Our renovation involved the demolition of the existing tiered seating and construction of a new sloped seminar room with fixed seating for 82. Accessibility improvements brought the facility up to contemporary standards.
Our renovation of Warren Alpert 563 created a seminar room for the Systems Biology Department. The space was renovated to provide a flexible environment for lectures and conferences with teaching walls in both the west and south walls. Moveable seating with tablets provides flexibility for multiple teaching modalities.
