The 72,500-square-foot, LEED Gold certified building was designed to be a catalyst for arts collaboration and interdisciplinary work. The architecture itself was designed to provide the potential for multiple activities to occur simultaneously or in conjunction with one another.
Major areas of the building include a 405-seat auditorium, a black box performance venue, a sound stage, a 108-seat film screening room, the Inter-Disciplinary Experimental Arts (IDEA) Space, and a multi-purpose Flex Room, which can be used as a teaching or performing space. The Cornerstone Arts Center has three floors, a mezzanine at the main auditorium entry, 10 faculty offices, five classrooms, and two digital media labs.
To facilitate the interdisciplinary relationship between the arts, the building was planned for optimum flexibility, and thus every space has been designed to have at least three possible functions.
