Description:
  • A 10 x 18 foot vertical dial on a south-facing brick wall. The hour lines are stainless steel sheet and are formed to create shadow effects that change with the position of the sun. The stainless steel Arabic hour numerals are on disks that are held on the wall by magnets, allowing them to be placed for ST or DST. A stylized school emblem is placed at the base of the gnomon. A round, two-sided plaque in the wall below describes the use of the dial, designed by Mindy Cameron of Lehrman Cameron Studio.

    Woody Sullivan was the expert sundial consultant for this project and Lehrman Cameron Studio relied on his vast knowledge and expertise. He provided the diagram of a sundial from which the final design evolved. He educated the architects at the Studio about sundials and reviewed their work for accuracy throughout the project’s process.
