Create a sculpture for an Int'l Corporate Headquarters Reception and Lobby Area. Scale of Artwork 13ft h x 20ft w x 4ft d
The 17th floor 2 Story Lobby had been built out by the previous tenant and had to be demolished. After the Demo and several other Team meetings and discussions, our direction was solidified and Models and Ideas were provide by each participating person and the scale of the artwork was determined. One of our goals was to bring Nature inside. Next was to decide How to integrate the Artwork and the space itself together with each other and then Finally what is the Viewers involvement with the Artwork.
Several approaches were discussed prior to our Final Design. The 17th floor Lobby, 2 Stories high, demanded a sculpture of massive proportion causing the Challenge and the questions to reorient to "How to get this scale and fit it all in an elevator and move it up 17 floors and through several corridors to be installed?" This added Energy to the discussions and actually helped to bring us together on how we could make this Space; Inviting, Intriguing and Involving.

[ manifesto ]
Art matters. Attention to the details of our environment leads to love of place, which brings us to take responsibility for the spaces where we live and work. And by extension, the people with whom we live and work. And by extension, to our local communities, our cities, our nations, and our world.
We champion the role of artists in our society. We need artists to provide us with inspiration, creativity, and imagination, and to help us envision a better world.
Architects and designers know that remarkable design can change everything. They connect the dots across disciplines, collaborating with artists to make the world a more beautiful place. They are the ultimate patrons of the arts.
In the process, design professionals promote imagination and creativity, and through their commissions, make original art integral to and accessible in people's lives.
Art in our public and private spaces helps us fight ordinary buildings, ordinary streets, ordinary cities. We celebrate the extraordinary.
The architecture of our buildings and the design of our interiors affect our happiness and well-being. Each of us deserves a daily dose of inspiration.
