The installation, designed by Variable Projects, is made up of 8,080 coloured No.2 pencils. It is a life-size representation of the historical moments of the school during their 100-year history. The pencils are arranged in 100 robotically-routed plywood ribs.

The curves in the piece reflect major historical periods for the school, like leadership tenures, buildings it has occupied, and the colleges it has belonged to. The color of the pencils shows the evolution of the school's degree programs over the years.
