Canyon’s Edge is the striking visual anchor in a very long, tall hospital lobby volume. The hanging pieces collectively form an impactful composition when viewed from across the lobby and each piece is finely detailed to engage nearby viewers below. The contrasting colors represent the varying terrain and vast blue sky of Texas. Scattered iridescent pieces give the shimmer of a mirage at the horizon, where rocky landscape meets the sky.
