What are the piers for?

If you look closely in the pictures below, you’ll see some piers placed in the midst of the area which will consist of pavers in the East Courtyard. The East Courtyard will include a through street that can be closed off from time to time for hosting events. The architects and design team were thinking ahead about what those events would need. The piers are for securing a tent in the East Courtyard! Lots of events and groups are hosted on campus throughout each summer. With as hot as this summer has been (heat warnings have run for the last 2 weeks straight, and there have been others already–last summer [2010] was similar), we’ll be glad for the shade a tent would provide for events hosted during the summers to come.
