Lattie F. Coor Hall


Named in honor of ASU's 15th president, Lattie F. Coor Hall was officially dedicated and opened in 2004. The building provides space for classrooms, open computer labs, research, survey research, special purpose facilities and offices. This facility is also equipped with state-of-the-art mediated classrooms, which are an essential support requirement for ASU's instructional mission. It houses the School of Politics and Global Studies; the School of Historical, Philosophical and Religious Studies; the School of Transborder Studies; the School of Geographical Sciences and Urban Planning; the School of Civic and Economic Thought and Leadership; and the Department of Speech and Hearing Science. It is also home to the Institute for Social Science Research, the Centers for Latin American Studies, Russian and East European Studies, Medieval and Renaissance Studies, and the Center for Asian Research.

Text fragments and letterforms etched on the glass façade of Lattie F. Coor Hall are one of the largest public art projects on campus. Chicago artist BJ Krivanek, commissioned by project architects Gensler and Jones Studio, 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. The text fragments are cast on an inner, opaque wall. This project was funded by the university's Percent-for-Art program, which instructs that one-half of one percent of all new construction costs be set aside for public art.
