Chapman University - Attallah Piazza
Fahmy Attallah, Ph.D. Piazza is centrally located between the Leatherby Libraries, Beckman Hall and Wilkinson Hall and provides the Chapman University community with a central gathering place for events, performances and daily interaction. The Attallah Piazza draws upon the heritage of the great piazzas of Italy that similarly serve as focal points for their cities and is anchored by the dramatic Marion Halfacre Fountain. The fountain, which resembles an ancient Neolithic stone circle rising in the middle of the spiraling pavement, is a visual symbolization of the “Four Pillars” of a Chapman education: intellectual, physical, social and spiritual. Each pillar is inscribed with the words of Fahmy Attallah from his book, Beauty of Being.
