University of Pittsburgh Johnstown Lecture Hall by IKM Incorporated. As part of a larger project, IKM is designing the renovation of an existing science and engineering lecture hall space. The project’s spatial constraints and existing conditions challenged the designer to create an acoustically functional and aesthetically pleasing space.
