The newest landmark of Epic Systems Corporation, the Midwest’s largest high-tech campus, Epic Deep Space has earned the title of the world’s largest sub-surface auditorium. Situated on an 811-acre site in Verona, Wisconsin, Deep Space is Epic Systems Corporation’s largest auditorium and seats up to 11,400 guests. The vast scale and advanced technology of Deep Space is designed for one purpose, to enhance the audience experience.
A large scale clay model that was 3D-scanned in order to produce a digital point cloud became the engine that drove the other technical delivery tools of the project. AIA praised the auditorium's green roof for providing "visual and physical connections to the surrounding Wisconsin landscape."
