Overview

Simon Property Group commissioned me to create a contemporary sculpture that would welcome visitors and shoppers to their new Phoenix Premium Outlets location near the Wild Horse Pass Casino off Interstate 10. After reviewing 2 different designs they chose this 12′ high solid aluminum spire.

Goals

The goal was to provide a point of interest at the major entry to the shopping center. Integrating the piece into the landscape islands was required by the client, and showcasing a contemporary fine art sculpture was equally important in creating an iconic entry area.

Process

I worked with the directly with the developers and project architects to present several ideas in 3D renderings from which Undualating Column was chosen.
