Wallis Annenberg Hall officially opened its doors for the Fall Semester of 2014. In addition to the many technological features of the new building, the unique donor recognition wall stands out as one of those prominent features on the first floor. Its double-floor height is impressive as long silver wires — that hold white panels — expand beyond the second level of the building. What is more remarkable are the white iridescent panels that highlight the names of individuals who made both large and modest donations towards the completion of the building. As an abstract representation of a circuit board, design firm Linespace drew inspiration from the School of Journalism and Communication’s pursuit and use of technologies of the future.
