Forum is meant to be both an iconic and recognizable ﬁgure on the campus and a space to rest, exchange, reﬂect, or simply pass through. It is a structure that ﬁlters sunlight in unexpected ways, but is also an open space or forum for ideas. Our proposal is inspired by classical structures and forms that evoke exchange, combined with contemporary materials and ways of making. There is an explicit difference between the exterior and interior to provide a sense of place. On one hand, natural in its form but also magical in the way it ﬁlters, reﬂects, and refracts light. 3M dichroic ﬁlm has optical properties that would make the piece a pedestrian scale kaleidoscope. The exterior is clad in aluminum tubes to create a screen. We would also integrate an array of addressable LED ﬁxtures into the structure that would act as an interactive way to activate the piece.
