The new Performing Arts Center and Academic Facility have added over 95,000 square feet to the Soka University of America campus in Aliso Viejo, California. The three-level Performing Arts Center houses a reception lobby, various support spaces, as well as a 1,000-seat auditorium. The Academic Facility features 10 classrooms, 30 offices, a black box theater that seats 180, and a dance studio.

The new Soka Performing Arts Center and Academic Facility is a great industry example of the leading edge for an energy efficient building. It has been certified with a LEED Gold rating because it uses 10% recycled content gypsum board, glass sunshade of the exterior glass wall panels system, and photovoltaic cells on the theater roof.
