March 23, 2015 – Last month the Minnesota Concrete Council recognized Northrop Auditorium as the 2014 Structural Design Merit Award winner. The project also received two Engineering Excellence awards given by ACEC Minnesota earlier in the year. The project is a complete redesign and re-purposing of the interior space of this iconic building on the University of Minnesota campus. Learn more about the project here and here.
February 2, 2015 – Northrop Auditorium at the University of Minnesota has not only won an American Council of Engineering Companies-Minnesota Grand Award, but also the 2nd annual Grand Conceptor Award, which is given to the project receiving the most votes overall. MBJ and University team members accepted the awards last Friday at the ACEC annual banquet. “We are pleased that this project is being recognized, not just because of its iconic status, but also because so many people put their heads together to work through the project’s tremendous design and construction challenges, and did it successfully,” remarked Mike Ramerth, principal-in-charge of the project. Northrop, as it is now called, also received an AIA Minnesota Honor Award last year and a Minneapolis Heritage Preservation Award in 2009. The project was no less than a complete redesign and re-purposing of the interior space as a dynamic, state-of-the-art learning, discovery, and performance center for use by the University and the greater community. The new technically and acoustically enriched auditorium brings a world class performance experience to the University campus.
