Two wall murals by Casey Reas will be installed in early fall 2014 at the Bill & Melinda Gates Computer Science Complex and Dell Computer Science Hall. Reas builds systems using code to create imagined worlds and synthetic images. The murals will be captured from a specially designed software process that is printed in the form of a large-scale wall application.

This multi-phase project will create a new medical campus along Red River Street to the north of 15th Street. Page Southerland Page is overseeing the first phase, which includes an education and administration building. The first phase is estimated to be complete by 2016.
Speedway will be reconstructed to form a major axis of campus that will stretch from MLK Jr. Boulevard to Dean Keeton Street and the East Mall will be transformed into a scenic gateway. The project will be realized by Peter Walker Partners Landscape Architects and will feature numerous public art projects.
