    It sounds weird either way. I'd say A great deal of thought went into the design of the auditorium. – snailcar May 16 '18 at 3:48
  • I agree with snailboat - idiomatically, it's always "a great deal of thought", never thoughts. – stangdon May 16 '18 at 4:10

Neither of the options sounds correct. It should be something like this:

Past:

A great deal of thought was put into designing the auditorium.

A great deal of thought was put into the design of the auditorium.

Present:

A great deal of thought is being put into designing the auditorium.

A great deal of thought is being put into the design of the auditorium.
