|The building has several striking features, including a soaring four-story atrium. The sculptured art panels in the first floor lobby have symbols that are representative of departments in the Buchtel College of Arts and Sciences as well as the Akron community. Tucked behind the building is the Lewis C. Turner Amphitheatre. Its concentric, semi-circular bands of concrete offer seating for 200. The amphitheatre also features four, 22-foot-tall freestanding Ionic columns that were once part of East Hall. URS Greiner Woodward Clyde Architects of Akron did the design.
