Lloyd Hamrol

Project Area: CBD/South Park
Project: Staples Center
Project Location: 1111 S. Figueroa Street
Project Type: Developer


"Press" is an ensemble of six cast colored concrete elliptical disks, ranging from 1 1/2' to 5' h and 3' to 12' w.   Located just west of the 11th Street entrance, the sculptures’ eccentric gestures and the scored trail marks on the pathways, energizes the public space into a zone of play.  Visitors may sense they are both spectators and participants in an unnamed and never ending game.
