Located in the world headquarters of Goldman Sachs, this 350-seat auditorium is used for everything from new employee training to new product introductions to large scale international broadcasts of senior executive addresses. Equipped with state-of-the-art broadcast equipment, including several remote controlled cameras and a full live-mix production studio, professional quality HD broadcasts can be produced and sent live worldwide. Alec worked with SHoP Architects to develop a form that would serve the highly technical requirements while still providing a comfortable, hospitable environment that met the expectations of the bank's top executives. The stage itself is a lift, which allows for a variety of relationships between the presenter and the audience. The technical equipment is fully automated, allowing the small house crew to change between event programs quickly.
