Created as a necessity of leisure by students in Iasi, the Students’ House of Culture has quickly become a real cultural landmark and a springboard for the young talents. The building includes an auditorium with 783 seats, foyers, exhibition halls, a library, conference rooms and various cultural and educational activities. The Students’ House of Culture has a total area of 2155 square meters. Together with “Mihai Eminescu” University Library, the Students’ House of Culture gives a distinct characteristic to the Youth Square in Iasi, the entire area featuring a special architectural value. Structurally, the building can be regarded as having the structural strength of reinforced concrete frames, locally braced by 25 and 37.5 cm thick-masonry. The building was originally designed as a massive structure of masonry, with concrete floors, but during the design period it became a structure on frames with a performance hall placed in the middle of the built volume.
