sm[ART]box at
California State University Long Beach

Carolyn Campagna Kleefeld Contemporary Art Museum installed a sustainable project on California State University Long Beach campus in December 2020 called sm[ART]box, developed by TBM Designs. The structure itself is built from a repurposed 20-foot steel shipping container which sparks imagination with its smart material-based technology. Sm[ART]box's multi-disciplinary approach and vanguard design application is intended to prompt discussion of a sustainable future for students, faculty, campus community members and the public at large. By efficiently responding to the changing outdoor temperature and blocking solar radiation with the InVert™ Self-Shading system, sm[ART]box stays cool inside while allowing large amounts of natural daylight.
