Northrop Auditorium Renovation - Early Stages

I've been fortunate this week to get guided access to some big construction projects at the University of Minnesota: the Cancer and Cardiovascular Research Building is going up, and historic Northrop Auditorium is being totally gutted and renovated. My next few postings will be photos from Northrop, and then from Cancer/Cardio.

This used to be a 5000 seat auditorium with a big stage and many balconies. Now it's been taken down to a huge empty volume, eventually to be filled with a smaller (but still large) auditorium and many other rooms to make it useful for the 21st century.
