Hill Auditorium, Ann Arbor

Hill Auditorium is a magnificent building located in the University of Michigan Central Campus at the crossing of North University and South Thayer Streets. The building was developed by well-known architectural firm Kahn and Wilby in 1913. It’s the performing arts stage for the university with a capacity of about 3,500, famous for its acoustical engineering created by Hugh Tallant. The most attractive exterior structure is the entrance, equipped with a mosaic flatdeck. The Renaissance whitish entrance contrasting with the dark walls has four columns and applied columns above the doors in the embayments. The main façade is decorated with the cornice and frieze of geometric ornaments along the perimeter of the entrance area. The Auditorium was reopened in 2004 after the extensive refurbishing.
