Metal Sales™ creates a stunning metal envelope for Arizona State University’s distinguished Walter Cronkite School of Journalism and Mass Communication in Phoenix, AZ.
The 223,000 square foot, six-story, multi-level facility is home to offices, retail space, restaurants, 17 media-equipped classrooms, seven computer labs, and seven professional newsrooms. The building also houses one of the country’s largest PBS stations, KAET Channel Eight. Its state-of-the-art technology and smartly designed space are unparalleled in journalism education, and the Metal Sales-supplied façade does its part to create a stand-out impression on the school’s campus.
One notable design element is its three-story core known as “The First Amendment Forum,” a multi-tiered common area at the building’s center. This space celebrates the connectivity of communication, thus yielding functional form in the interior as well.
