MSSU // Cornell Auditorium Renovation

The Client
Missouri Southern State University
Project Type
Higher Education
Joplin, MO

The interior renovation of the existing Cornell Auditorium at Missouri Southern State University led to the transformation of a dark, outdated, and unwelcoming space into a brighter, more modern environment. By completely gutting the auditorium, the design team was able to revamp the character of the space. New lighting, flooring, and seating was installed throughout in a thoughtful layout that allows for better mobility through rows and between aisles. MSSU’s signature school colors provided a modern palette for wall and flooring accents. Antiquated technology was replaced with a new sound system, projector, screen, and control systems. Interior finish and lighting updates to the lobby leading into the auditorium provides the venue with a cohesive and inviting aesthetic.
