The display came after a design competition in which the winning design planned to create spherical shapes out of the red Solo cups.

The Red Cup Project members displayed spheres made of red Solo cups from 9:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. Wednesday on the quad in order to raise awareness for sustainability and environmental issues with arts.

They hope to have the project constructed at Thornden Park on April 19.

The Red Cup Project announced “The Red Cup Spheres and Lines” as the winning design for the competition a few weeks ago at the State University of New York College of Environmental Science and Forestry Gateway Center

The Red Cup Project, who made an installation out of red Solo cups in the fall semester, will return this spring with a contest to pick their next installation.

The Red Cup Project members announced last Monday a design competition with red Solo cups. Originally starting the project as a group project for an architecture course in fall of 2014, they are now trying to combine arts with the awareness of sustainability.

The solo cups that form the installations are made of a plastic that is not recyclable in Syracuse.

Structures built out of red solo cups appeared in different forms around campus this week, calling awareness to the party culture at Syracuse University and related issues of sustainability.

The solo cup installations are part of the Red Cup Project, a group project for the architecture class ARC 500: Politics of Public Space. The class is taught by associate professor Lori Brown. Three SU architecture students and one student from State University of New York College of Environmental Science and Forestry run the project.
