Kent State CAED to Celebrate Grand Opening

The new Kent State Center for Architecture and Environmental Design building in Kent, Ohio will celebrate its Grand Opening on October 7th with an event series that includes a talk by Marion Weiss and Michael A. Manfredi.

The 117,000-square-foot building establishes an innovative center for the design disciplines and a beacon signaling Kent State's creative, research-based programs.

Architecture critic Steven Litt referred to the building as a "dazzler" in a recent review, stating ". . . the bands of brick that sweep across building's fa´┐Żade in diagonal layers combine flush areas of traditionally laid bricks with vertical ribs of brick that are spaced narrowly or widely to create shadows, texture, depth and an almost musical sense of rhythm."

For further details on the opening, visit the Kent State College of Architecture and Environmental Design.
