The building is the gateway to the campus, serving as a landmark expressing the new growth of this historical school. It is one of the Historic African-American Universities.
The building is organized in 2 parts. The first part houses the Cultural Center archives and exhibition area (memory). The Cultural Center and the School of Architecture share a state of the art presentation theatre which can support lectures, music, and virtual scenario planning of urban strategies. A bridge connects it to the second part, a long body which houses the College of Architecture and Art (laboratory), which is organized over 3 floors bifurcated by a continuous canyon.
This is the social exchange zone that is critical to the success of a creative community. The communal life of the school occurs in the 450 long zone. The building is a concrete structure with brick and glass and steel cladding.
