“Cumulus” is a collaboration between 120 students from Tonalea School in Scottsdale and 44 students in The Design School in the Herberger Institute for Design and the Arts. The 10 graduate students in interior architecture and 34 undergraduate students in industrial design visited the children several times this semester. The middle schoolers did activities like coloring in drawings of rain drops, writing their thoughts about water and making paper crowns.

Then the ASU students drew inspiration from the kids’ work as they created the installation, which will debut Nov. 9. Designed to be interactive, the piece will have benches to sit on and parts will light up when people walk by.
