45 Degrees, 90 Degrees, 180 Degrees, Court of Engineering, Rice University

Michael Heizer
pink Llano granite, 1984

The Mechanical Laboratory and Power House, one of Rice's four original buildings (1912), provides the background for these enormous sculptures. The same kind of granite was used in the sculptures as that used by Cram, Goodhue & Ferguson in their building.
The titles of the works refer to the angles of the colossal slabs and provide some connection to a courtyard related to engineering..
