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