In a competition organized by the Utah Arts Council for the Cowles Mathematics Building, the faculty asked for art that would create the sense that this is a "house of mathematics" and convey its wide ranging influence. They also asked that it be a source of pleasure, intrigue and inspiration for future generations, a rare statement from a building committee. To document this work and its implications both for mathematics and architecture is the basis for this paper and visual presentation.
