TAMIU Trailblazers Tower Globe
The TAMIU Trailblazers Tower Globe is a sculptural representation of the Texas A&M International University Logo. The sculpture sits on the beloved Trailblazers Tower, a key point of interest on campus. The globe is composed of a structural steel space frame with inset perforated steel facets that create a moire pattern that changes depending on the angle you view it from. Continents float above the space frame, made from hammered stainless steel. The lighting program consists of hourly events which coincide with the tower clock, direct control of different lighting selections and 5 pre-programed seasonal/event based light shows.
