An interactive sculpture of stainless steel and bronze, Arch Cradle signifies the nurturing and inspiration Palo Alto provides its citizens.


The aim for this project was an experience that enticed from a distance and also provided a playful element. Over the years the piece has become a favorite of children to play on and around.
