The Jetson project is an art installation at the Georgia Institute of Technology within the Clough Undergraduate Learning Commons. Located at the Tennenbaum Atrium the design is suspended within space and hovering above the main entrance lobby.
The design is established by 5 distinct ellipses representing the five colleges at the Institute which are connected by several single surface links. As a color choice the design reflects gold, white and black which are historic GT colors. The Jetson project resembles a futuristic appearance intriguing notions of innovation and technology. It is constructed out of hundreds of unique anodized and painted aluminum shapes and is build in reference to the structure of a monocoque airplane.
