At once visually spontaneous and architecturally straightforward, the concept for the tower artwork is a comprehensive, vibrant reflection on the concept of time.
Suspended in mid-air are two nearly touching semi-spirals of dichroic glass. Each composition “half” is composed of 12 individual 8’x24” glass panels running along different color gradients. A total of 24 hanging glass panels, constantly changing in color, represent the dynamic, but transient hours of each day.
A 4’-diameter stainless steel ring with LED lights complements the dichroic glass composition.
Surges of light, which fully utilize the interior space, celebrate significant points in the day. These ‘light shows’ enliven the space with splashes of color, harmonizing with the bustle of the busy foyer space.

[ 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.
