Arts Building

-A A +A
1986, CCC Architects

Another of the more recent structures on the campus, the Arts Building opened in 1986. The silver-gray panels are accented with red trim, contrasting with the smoky black glass of the ribbon windows. The theater, on the right, is evident by the fly, and the building has an appropriately broad and public entrance in the center. The V-shaped building faces a mountainous landscape against which its low, prismatic high-tech form is eloquently juxtaposed.
