The ancient "art of memory" technique calls for the construction of an imaginary "palace" containing different rooms in which to store one's thoughts. As a suggestion to future builders of memory palaces (and the destinations for wandering attention spans during lectures), the ceiling of the lecture room is punctuated with models of famous domes and vaults of world architecture. Selections include Hagia Sophia, the Pantheon, Chartres Cathedral, a Native American long house, a Mayan temple, a pagoda, and the Sydney Opera House.

Location: ceiling of Lecture Room 255/257 on the Second Floor
