Outdoors Indoors At The Library


Earlier this month, students from Cornell University Department of design and Environmental Analysis managed to “bring the outdoors indoors” by installing areas of real grass lawn in the Mann Library lobby

A sign in the lobby says it all:

Yes, it’s real grass. Yes, you can sit, lay down and roll around on the grass, but please don’t stomp on it. The grass is part of the exhibit. Various professors in Human Ecology have done research on the restorative benefits of nature. Instead of telling you about this, we decided to show you. So sit, relax, lay down, and enjoy the grass!
