Bldg 1 mural detail

A recently installed mural visualizing Civil and Environmental Engineering’s interdisciplinary achievements and new avenues of research now brightens up the corridor near the Spofford Room (1-236). Digital painter explained how to read from left to right, with creative illustrations showing ongoing work including morphable surfaces, patterns of disease transmission among plants, the ubiquitous cyanobacterium Prochlorococcus, and atomistic-level materials research. The mural is “a comment on scientific visualization, interdisciplinary research and the future of CEE; they go hand in hand, and will evolve together,” said Sanker. This mural is part of an effort to modernize the look and feel of the hallways in Pierce. View a photo of the mural.
