Walter P Moore provided structural engineering design and documentation services for this two story auditorium complex with 7,000 square meters of performance, rehearsal and classroom space for International School of Panama. The complex folding roof design and long cantilevers required the innovative application of structural steel trusses. Concrete walls required for the stage are utilized as the lateral load resisting system. Large glass wall at the entrance with long cantilevering roof created a special challenge which was met with innovative use of a set of shallow trusses.
