UTAZ REAL ESTATE CORP
My client UTAZ R.E. Corp held a competition to find an artist to create a sculpture that would fullfill the City of Tempe art in private development requirement. They chose my sculpture proposal for WAVE. I designed the piece to create a sense of drama and identity at the entry turnaround to this medical complex
The client wanted something that was a contrast to the 10 buildings in the campus which were all in a similar architectural style. The soft color of the brushed bronze was considered the best finish for the welcoming role for the sculpture.
The client committee reviewed my proposals as 3D CAD renderings and reached a consensus very quickly.
