location: Pittsburgh, PA
project status: Ongoing

Inspired by the French children’s word for napping, “Dodo” will consist of a cluster of hammocks installed on the lawn across the University Center for napping on CMU’s campus during the fall, summer and spring seasons, while promoting awareness for the benefits of sleeping on the campus. Recycled parachutes swaying in the wind will cast shade while soothing nappers. This project will develop a corresponding Nap Map to highlight the best spaces on campus to catch some shut-eye.
