The Walking Wall
Randall Hoyt, Mark Zurolo, & Barry Svigals, 2003.
This Frieze, a broad horizontal band of sculpted or painted decoration on a building, is featured on two identical buildings at the center of UConn. The design of the frieze was a collaboration between students, faculty, and university constituents. It is over 300 feet long and consists of figures and words made from the letters that spell “UNIVERSITY OF CONNECTICUT”. The words appearing on the building were chosen by the NEAG School of Education and Center for Undergrad Education at UConn. Randall Hoyt, Mark Zurolo and Barry Svigals were all design faculty at the UConn School of Fine Arts at the time this work was created.
Words you can find on this building: Tuition, Envision, Unity, Curiosity, Invite, Connection, Sincerity, Serve, Everyone.
