Abstract

Unbuilt WPI is an IQP devoted to exploring the WPI that could have been.The display portion of the project, inspired by recent 150th celebrations, is part of a visual timeline exhibit located around campus. Each display presents proposed designs for WPI buildings ultimately constructed differently or, in some cases, not at all. WPIÂ’s Curation, Preservation, and Archives department provided the images and information for most of the displays. A research paper compliments these displays, delving further into the reasonings behind each proposed building(s) while also highlighting the architectural style and historical context of each proposal.
