From Ted-talk-style speakers to classroom lectures, the focus is on the audience at Harvard Business School’s Klarman Hall. This high-performance lecture space offers extensive flexibility for its myriad of events and audience scales. Accent lighting is incorporated to provide facial recognition for audience/speaker communications while remaining comfortable to the viewers. A DMX system featuring 90 lighting zones across the Hall and winter garden allow for ultimate flexibility and control for activities and performances. A networked control system operates other spaces throughout the building, adjusting light levels based on daylight and activity resulting in high energy efficiency.
