a music hall

MUSIC-HALL_01

This small hall type has a basket-weave brick floor, the roof supported on pipe columns that float free of the brick walls.  The exterior corners are Mies-inspired, while the window treatments are a take on Richardson’s Sever Hall at Harvard.  Details of that window system are below: elevation/section, axon of the base, worm’s eye of the head.  I owe you roof-ceiling information – but the question remains, bow truss or hammer beam?  Or something altogether different?
