The primary objective of the project was to create comfortable and modern interiors adequate for giving lectures. A auditorium is the largest (for 220 people) and a multi-functional one. Two others (B and C) can comprise 160 people.
All three auditoriums are of similar décor but with individual interior design and differentiated by color of the interior – the colour code implied in the project is its key idea and it helps to identify the halls. Modernized lecture halls are equipped with complete electronic installations and advanced multimedia systems including simultaneous interpretation system.
The project includes also a design of service rooms – foyer of auditorium and a “history of computer technology room” which complements educational functions of auditoriums. The service rooms, in contrast to the lecture halls, are designed in white colour which intensifies the effect of “immersion” of the user in “the space of color” after entering the auditoriums. The cost of realization of the project is about 9 million PLN.
