Power Center for the Performing Arts, University of Michigan

Kevin Roche and John Dinkeloo and Associates

In 1965 the University of Michigan commissioned this elegant facility with a 1450 seat auditorium. Built of reinforced concrete, the auditorium has a classical colonnade with six 8' diameter columns and a lobby wall with reflecting glass. Two glass-enclosed staircases rise to a walkway above the lobby.
