The theatre has the shape of a a horse shoe which encourages dialogue, not only between presenter and audience, but also between the participants of the auditorium and those taking part through digital channels on the large video screen. The Humanities Theatre is an attractive venue for all kinds of events. Apart from the inviting theatre, there are also conference rooms and other social spaces and the latest technology.

Design

The Humanities Theatre, interior.

White Architects have designed a building inspired by the Anatomical Theatre, which was built on top of Gustavianum by Olof Rudbeck in the 1600s.

The theatre seats about 140 people and has a horseshoe-shaped seating area which encourages dialogue, not just between speaker and audience, but also between participants in the auditorium and those taking part digitally via the 32 square metre screen. The room has soft shapes and is characterized by the large screen, which itself is also slightly curved.

The closeness between all participants and the advanced audio-visual technology sets this room apart from other larger auditoriums in the Uppsala region.
