Refresher on the atrium in Pigott

Q:  What is the official name of the atrium in the Pigott Building? 

A:  Many refer to this expansive space as “Pigott Atrium,” but that would be incorrect. The name that should always be used is “PACCAR Atrium.” For the record, the company for which the atrium is named should be written as “PACCAR Inc”. The PACCAR Atrium, of course, is home to the Bottom Line café, comfortable furniture and the stunning Chihuly glass sculpture, “Accendo.”
