Wichita State University's “Pods” provide a visual identity and new hang-out spaces along the East Mall that runs from the John Bardo Center to Braeburn Square. Each of the themed pods, designed by Wichita artist Brady Hatter, stand 16 feet tall and provide seating for six people with a small table in the middle. The pods are made of a steel framework with different materials (acrylic panels, multicolored padlocks and flowering vine) interwoven into the structure.
