The exterior of the USC SSIB building reflects the Italian Romanesque architectural style of USC with brick veneer and precast veneer elements. Cladding consists of a 4-color blended brick veneer with complementing precast and GFRC. The colonnade area encompasses brick veneer arches and precast concrete veneer bases and bands. Integrating precast crane set arches with handset precast, handset GFRC and brick veneer was a construction challenge. The overall design of arches at all the windows and storefronts completes the contemporary design which harmonizes with the campus.
