Gartner Auditorium
Cleveland Museum of Art 


The Gartner Auditorium project was a substantial renovation and acoustic upgrade to the 650-seat hall, originally designed by Marcel Breuer, during his 1971 expansion to the Cleveland Museum of Art. Care was taken to preserve the clean articulated screen language on the walls and ceiling, while introducing fixed acoustic diffusion and variable acoustic absorption behind. Modifications were also made to the platform wall, and seating was replaced.
