Update: Info from today, March 18, via The Rice Thresher, Rice University’s newspaper: The $6-million skyspace “will be situated on a raised grass hill so that people will be able to walk through it into a covered tunnel inside, where there will be space for 30 to 40 people to sit on benches. The second floor will have standing room for 60 to 70 people, along with a panel in the ceiling to display the sky and frame an LED display for shows at sunrise and sunset. The skyspace will be outfitted for musical performances by small ensembles.” The installation is expected to be completed by December.
