Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Yin/Yang Pavilion at Simmons Hall

Cambridge, MA


Van Noorden Architectural Metalwork



The Yin/Yang Pavilion, a sculpture designed by Dan Graham, is located on the second floor terrace of Simmons Hall at MIT.  The curving sculpture, constructed from 7 ft high panels of laminated two-way mirror glass, rests in a reflecting pool on one side and gravel on the other. As a requirement of their contract, the steel fabricator called upon SGH to provide structural engineering services for the sculpture.
