The dark-blue topped postmodern building towering over the campus of the California State University of Long Beach is the Pyramid. The eighteen-storey structure has an architectural height of 57.91 meters or 190 feet. The base of the edifice is square with each side measuring at 345 feet to be a mathematically true pyramid. It was designed as a stadium using concrete as structural material with an aluminum façade.
The Pyramid was officially opened on November 30, 1994 and renamed Mike and Arlene Walter Pyramid on March 5, 2005, in honor of the benefactors.
The stadium accomodates three full basketball courts, five volleyball courts and a seating capacity of 5,000 and is also the home of the university’s 49ers teams- basketball and volleyball. Also sharing with the facility are the Pointe Conference Center and the Frog’s Fitness club.
