Wall of Honor by RE:site

The goals for the project were to create an exterior donor recognition feature that was as dramatic viewed from the adjacent freeway as it would be viewed up close. The Wall of Honor dynamically utilizes the motion of the visitor to create a dramatic visual experience. Whether a few feet away in the parking lot or in a car traveling along the freeway, as visitors move from east to west, the wall’s folded surface appears to transform from a continuous photo-etched image of running, wild horses into an expansive area for donor recognition. Approaching from west to east, the visual sequence is reversed. Seamlessly integrated with the building’s architecture, the wall is composed of the same stone that is used for the marquee element above the museum entrance. In addition, the image of running horses echoes the statuary in front of the building. Read more.
