In flight

Four landscape architecture students created "The Flying Machine," a 32-foot-wide flight machine based on 15th-century sketches by Leonardo DaVinci, in a spring interdisciplinary design studio taught by Mitchell Squire, assistant professor of architecture. The flying machine hangs at the east end in the College of Design atrium. Its principal construction materials are ash, rope and leather. Photo by Grant Steinfeldt.
