ENIAC Lounge, Moore 100

School of Engineering and Applied Sciences


This project fulfills several needs for the School of Engineering and Applied Sciences, including new computer classrooms, a student Study Lounge and a more accessible display for the historic ENIAC computer artifacts. The display contains four of the original forty ENIAC panels, a vital piece of the origins of modern computing. The three new computer classrooms line the two exterior walls of the space, taking full advantage of ample daylighting from large north and east facing windows. The classrooms are open as computer study spaces when classes are not scheduled. All three classrooms are entered through the Central Lounge, with the rear visible from the classroom beyond. The Lounge and adjacent classrooms are often used for tours of the artifacts. In addition, articulated lighting and interactive graphics within the Lounge allow for self-guided tours.
