The Forum is part of the Pennsylvania State Capitol Building, which is commonly regarded as one of the most beautiful state capitols in the country. The auditorium incorporates semicircular seating and a distinctive ceiling depicting the constellations of the northern sky.
When we build, let us think that we build forever. Let it not be for present delight, nor for present use alone; let it be such work as our descendants will thank us for ... and that men will say, as they look upon the labor and wrought substance of them, "See! this our fathers did for us." (John Ruskin)
