BY KATIE YURKEWICZ
@ VOL 5

Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory looks like no other science lab on Earth—thanks to the vision of founding director Robert Wilson and artist Angela Gonzales. Under their aesthetic direction, architecture, sculpture, color, and design combined to produce a lab that was revolutionary for its time. In Designing a Laboratory: Art, Architecture, and the Founding of Fermilab from PechaKucha Night Batavia Vol. 5, Katie Yurkewicz shows off another side of the legendary physics lab.
