Designed in partnership between two architecture firms, the Lattie F. Coor Hall is named in honor of ASU's fifteenth president. The 25 classrooms, lecture halls, and seminar rooms represent the most advanced developments in mediated classroom design. Thirteen of the Universities? social science departments ranging from Speech and Hearing Science to History to Political Science are housed inside. Every space occupied by a human being has access to natural daylight, and the existing paths of campus circulation remained intact. Text fragments and letterforms, etched on the glass fašade of Lattie F. Coor Hall, are part of the latest, and largest, work of public art on campus. Chicago artist BJ Krivanek, commissioned by the architects, selected letters from several Latin-based, Native American and Asian languages, as well as numbers and punctuation marks, to represent the universal potential of language. He designed the building so the text fragments are cast on an inner, opaque wall.
