Alexander Liberman's dynamic 44' h painted steel all-white abstract sculpture is located in the building’s entry plaza on Hope Street. In contrast to the architecture of most of the surrounding buildings, Ulysses is composed of a diverse collection of ovals, circles, and ellipses integrated with a series of helical shaped ribbons swirling around the lower half of a unifying central column. This rich variety of details and patterns evoke a sense of movement, energize the space, and underscore the purpose of the plaza as both a portal for a pedestrian alley between Hope and Grand and as a passageway for visitors entering and leaving the building.
