Skeptacle

Skeptacle

If "Skep" is an old word for a beehive made of straw, and a spectacle is something to behold, and being skeptical is advised while beholding this complicated world, then Skeptacle, is a giant bookcase crafted to contain the thesis volumes produced by generations of San Jose State University students. The Skeptacle's majestic spiral form honors the boundless investigation of the thesis authors, as well as their bee-like creative and intellectual productivity.
