Wave of Knowledge acts as inspirational metaphor, suggesting a beautiful educational journey and boundless exploration expressed in a bright gradient of color. It is the visual and thematic counterpart of the outdoor sculpture Open Door, Wave of Knowledge measures 14 feet high, 150 feet long and 2 inches thick.
WAVE OF KNOWLEDGE, and OPEN DOOR are crucially present at the threshold of the Richard Desich SMART Centers for Microtechnology, a state of the art facility devoted to the exploration of design, technology, and innovation.
