The board of Regents of the University of Texas at Austin has accepted a 13-foot tall steel construction designed to illustrate steel building construction techniques. The object, which was gifted by the Texas Structural Steel Institute, will be sited in the plaza between the Architecture Building and the Nanofab Center on the west side of campus, as if it was one of the 20th century constructivist steel sculptures it superficially resembles and will be used as teaching tool. University President James Spaniolo said “I think it’s part of the continuing evolution of the university that we’ll see more outdoor art.”
