Arnold and Mabel Beckman Business & Technology Hall

A gateway structure located at the main entrance to the University that is sensitive to its surrounding context, including some historical buildings in a classical style. The building’s main entry faces the center of the campus and is marked by a tower, the top of which is articulated with a lattice of steel that suggests the pattern of window panes on the historical buildings at the University known as the “Chapman Window”.  Beckman Hall is the new home for the University’s undergraduate and graduate programs in business and economics containing the University’s central information technology equipment and management facilities.
