The installation includes an “X and Y” bench, and in addition circular and bracket bookend courtyard enclosures. The benches serve as functional places for students to gather, and socialize, while maintaining a design concept congruent with the academic setting.
The benches were built of Ipe, supplied by Channel Lumber. Ipe, also known as Brazilian hardwood, is a tropical wood growing throughout Central and South America. Often a top choice for decking, Ipe is extremely durable, strong, naturally resistant to moisture and decay, and insect infestations.
