The Industrial Arts Building on the Arizona State University campus in Tempe, Arizona, later known as the Anthropology Building and now known as the School of Human Evolution and Social Change, was built in 1914. It was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1985.
The building was designed by Norman F. Marsh, a California architect. It is significant for being the first and only true Classical Revival building on the campus, as well as the first building to use reinforced concrete construction. Within the history of Arizona State University, it represents the expansion of the curriculum beyond teacher training. It was also the first building built west of College Avenue.
