Learning Commons Atrium Sculpture
Learning Commons Atrium Mobile
Marco Mahler,听Sculptor

Artist Marco Mahler's sculpture, suspended from the fourth floor to the first floor atrium of the Learning Commons, is a visual representation of the building's interactive nature.听It听consists of two parts that visually correspond with each other and complete each other.听Each part measures 25 feet in height and 16 feet in diameter.

Mahler designed the sculpture with interconnected balance structures听throughout; the equilibrium of each part depends on the counterparts that are linked to it.听Just like the spaces in the Learning Commons, it can be freely interpreted and听reinterpreted.
