Steel, Commissioned by Glacier House for Element Hotel in Chandler, AZ.
The goal of this project was to create a signature landmark for the Element Hotel at Chandler Fashion Center.
After discussing a concept and direction with Glacier House Hotels, we presented several ideas. With feedback from their consultants, the site specific jack-rabbit theme was chosen. Elemental Jack is the end result of a collaboration between Glacier House creative management and our studio.
Elemental Jack. Fabricated steel, concrete, and LED lights. Sited at Element Hotel, Chandler, AZ, 2017. Elemental Jack is a representation of the native desert landscape and it's living creatures. Element Hotels promote green practices through sustainable products and technology.
