The McKinley building, which earned LEED Gold in 2015, is home to the School of Communications (SOC). The building was designed by Bowie-Gridley Architects and features several aspects of sustainable design.
The original structure was completed in 1918 and was one of the first buildings on the AU campus. The LEED project featured a complete interior renovation as well as a new addition to the original structure. The façade and iconic copper dome of the building were retained and designed to complement the original structure, signifying the convergence of traditional and new media landscapes.
