Project Type: Developer
Constructed with burnished sheet stainless steel, Michael Heizer's 8' h geometrical solids "North" (two rectangles), "East" (an inverted frustum), "South" (upright cone), and "West" (wedge), break up the rectangular forecourt of the building's street level entrance and redirect movement by compelling the viewer to respond to the ensemble. Each piece is visually anchored to the floor by travertine marble, highlighting the shape of their base. Alignment and location of the pieces are according to the size and scale of the space, as well as to the placement of the building's doors, stairs and escalators.
