The first floor of the brand new, 10-story Tower at STAR features a multi-purpose Audion and Tower Atrium. The space is used for events including community lectures, cooking demonstrations, conferences, meetings and will serve as a  unique learning space. A feature of the atrium area includes a living wall with a chef’s garden, which is a sustainable, horizontal garden that will greet students, faculty and visitors as they enter the atrium space and will be a signature piece for the theme of the building.
