The Lincoln Center is home to 11 resident arts organizations presenting music, theater, dance, film, opera, and more that bring a tapestry of artists—from across the globe—to New York City. The stage and concert halls must be designed to bring live performances to life and create unforgettable experiences. 

This webinar discusses the use of simulation and building design tools to redesign the ventilation and comfort strategy inside the David Geffen Hall at the Lincoln Center. Our guest presenter from Kohler Ronan Engineers shows how they changed the ventilation strategy to accommodate comfort and acoustic requirements for the New York Philharmonic and the audience. 

Our specialists also show you how computational fluid dynamics (CFD) in the cloud can be used to design for ventilation, air quality, thermal comfort, and other environmental variables in large and complex spaces including:
