The title of our blog post this week is “Sun Spots this Summer?” so we are highlighting one of the architectural grilles that resembles  a sunburst design. These grilles typically disguise the Adams Building’s ventilation system and are visible throughout the building. This one is a bit hard to spot (no pun intended!), since it is in the back of the Science and Business Reading Room under the marble table upon which our owl sculpture rests.
