1. The Hangout

New swaddling hammocks outside Fondren Library draw students (and faculty) in search of a cozy perch.

2. SI and Susie Morris Lounge

A shaded and sinuous bench built for varying levels of reclining.

3. “45°, 90°, 180°”

Aka: where students are always trying to persuade teachers to have class.

4. “Mirror”

The Jaume Plensa figures made of letters and numbers create interesting shadows and unconventional seating.

5. Turrell’s “Twilight Epiphany” Skyspace

A pleasantly shaded place during the day, a striking mixture of music and light at night.
