The Main Campus Center (MCC) in the Denny Triangle-South Lake Union neighborhood of Seattle is the centerpiece of the Cornish’s downtown campus. Formerly the Volker Building, the MCC is on the National Register of Historic Places as a fine example of art deco architecture from 1928. Classic on the outside and thoroughly modern on the inside, the MCC’s large windows look out on Seattle’s cityscape, including the Space Needle in nearby Seattle Center.
