Harrison Fraker, dean of the College of Environmental Design, and his wife, Molly, were among some 300 revelers at the College of Environmental Design's Beaux Arts Costume Ball, held April 3 in Wurster Hall Courtyard.
Besides a large contingent of architectural elements and design tools -- including a Corinthian column, a giant T-square, an energy-efficient house and a paint palette -- undergraduate and graduate students, staff and faculty also made their debuts as gorillas, bird ladies, refinery fires, "motion," traditional Turks and lederhosen-clad Bavarians. Members of one design studio wore garments made from yellow and black "Caution" tape; others came barely clothed in plastic bubble wrap.
A six-member band calling itself, for now, "The Post Moderns," featured vocalists Barbara Hadenfeldt, manager of the Institute of Urban and Regional Design, and Victoria Randlett, PhD candidate in geography. Charles Hadenfeldt, research administrator at the Sponsored Projects Office, played drums. Peg Skorpinski photo.
