Three designers, a fiber artist and a musician collaborated to create the winning design for this year’s competition, installed on Neeb Plaza, between the School of Art and The Design School. The design creates a multi-level and multi-purpose seating, lounging and gathering spot with trees and an artificial turf to create an inviting and comfortable place for the campus community.
