Pattee Library and the Paterno Library – Phase 3 Renovations, Penn State University

Relocating the Foster Auditorium to the link between Central Pattee Library and Paterno Library, directly adjacent to the Curtin Road entrance created a prominent lobby that doubles as pre-function space that is accessible after normal operating hours. The newly created leisure reading room offers a relaxed atmosphere while restoring the traditional architecture of the space.

The interior of the Foster Auditorium was designed with a traditional look while outfitted with the latest technology. The multi-purpose nature of the space demanded highly flexible A/V and IT services. A raised floor supported this requirement and helped reduce the overall duration of construction.
