Michael Davis

Project Area: Beacon Street
Project: Pacific Place
Project Location: 222 W. 6th Street
Project Type: Developer


Located in a small plaza enveloped by tall office buildings in a fountain area that mediates the traffic flowing between the surrounding buildings.  The fountain area consists of three abstract copper sculptural elements:  on the left is a sphere; on the right is a tall thin cone-shaped column; and directly behind these two is a low triangle with green patina.  All three sculptures stand in a reflecting pool in front of a fountain wall.  At the front of the building are a series of sculptural column lights atop concrete bases integrated into the building steps.
