This project consisted of two powder coated steel kinetic giraffe sculptures, 10' x 2'8″ x 5'4″ and 7' x 2'3″ x 4'. The heads nod in the wind.
The clients wanted large colorful sculpture that would appeal to children as they explore the garden-like playground of the Children's Inn, a family residential facility at National Institute of Health.
We were initially contacted by the architect on the project, with whom we coordinated on the sculpture choice and delivery. The client handled the placement and installation of the sculptures.
