Green Oak as Sculpture?
Meanwhile.. We have art! Well, what we are calling our “Green Oak Research Sculpture”. Students are working with the Tennessee Center for Renewable Carbon and the UT Arboretum to develop this portion of our materials research. We have 15 pallets nine feet above ground that are subjects to measure dimensional movement, durability, and weathering qualities ( such as change in appearance). Students will monitor this project with photographic documentation once a month for the next 3 years to develop conclusions that can be applied to our future design/build/evaluate project.
