Photos: IUPUI Campus Center Interior

I intended to get over to the IUPUI Campus Center a second time this week to add photos to this collection. Unfortunately, it doesn't look like I'll be able to do that. Rather than delay any more, here's the shortened set I took last Friday, January 25th. An additional set may follow at a later date, perhaps when the building is 100% complete. See earlier photos of the exterior here and here.
The Art Deco signage above each of the
three entrances. This is the SE entrance.
The view from below (basement level). Note the
long escalator at left, with landings at each floor.
The gerbil tube connecting the second levels
of the Campus Center and Cavanaugh Hall.
Each department within the Campus Center
features a sign such as this over the door.
There is a small gallery space in the Campus Center
currently showing "Marching Toward Justice: The History
of the 14th Amendment to the United States Constitution."
The view from above (4th floor).
For those that are curious, Starbucks gets the prime spot in the Campus Center: First Floor on the corner of Michigan and University, inside the Barnes & Noble bookstore. It is expected to open in April, though no work had begun as of last week.

I like the Art Deco detailing, and wish it had been carried through the building more thoroughly. But then, I like Art Deco.

It is interesting to note that David King, the architect recently hired to create a master plan for all IU campuses, served as a lead designer for SmithGroup (the firm that designed the Campus Center). This could be a very good thing for IU.
