A few of the people I spoke to raised concerns about V/045 and D/L/028 Hendrix Hall lecture theatres. I'm currently investigating ways to improve the airflow and cooling in these theatres, and will report back when I've found out more.
We also received some really useful comments on the plans for the space refurbishments this Christmas, particularly around the conflict between designing flexible spaces that can be used for many different purposes vs providing a high quality learning space that is really good at what it is there to do.
For example, should D/056 feature fixed booth-style seating of a high quality, rather than moveable chairs with tablets laid out in rows? Let us know your thoughts!
The next session will take place from 2.00pm to 5.00pm on Thursday 19 November in the Ron Cooke Hub Atrium. We look forward to seeing you there!
