This image was taken at UC Irvine and it is of wall. As you can see the wall is structured with three pillars and parallel to the three openings are three windows at the top. This structure has the purpose of creating a gateway to pathways to many other buildings. It was observed that the students always preferred to walk through it then around it. The windows may have been made to make the wall aerodynamic and decrease the risk of being blown down when winds are heavy.
