One of three true pyramids in the United States (others are located in Las Vegas and Memphis), the Walter Pyramid's distinctive cobalt blue exterior has permanently altered the city's skyline. It rises 18 stories above north campus and can be seen for miles in all directions.
The Walter Pyramid's most unique feature is its cantilevered seating system, mounted on moveable platforms. When use of the ...floor level is required, each 81-ton seating platform can be raised hydraulically to expose over 39,000 square feet of beechwood flooring.
Its floor space accommodates nine volleyball courts or three full basketball courts and four additional half basketball courts on the "activity" level.
The Walter Pyramid measures 345 feet on each side of its perfectly square base, with 4,000 fixed seats, the Pyramid can hold a capacity of over 5,000 people, for concerts, sporting events, and family entertainment.
