Torre de la Flores, Northgate Transfer Station, El Paso, TX

In Northeast El Paso there had once existed a tall blue pyramidal structure built to announce the Sunrise Shopping Center. Until it was torn down, it served as a major landmark and icon of Northeast El Paso. Finding inspiration in the lore of the blue icon, Torre de la Flores celebrates the fields of poppies that cover the surrounding hillsides in spring with over 600 yellow disks that move freely in the wind.

Kuulo is the Somali word for beads, and beads cut across cultural differences. With a large Somali population in the Cedar-Riverside neighborhoods, African beads became an inspiration for our designs that allude to the diversity of the neighborhood.

Building Blocks, Imaginon, Charlotte, NC

Building Blocks, Imaginon, Charlotte, NC

Building Blocks garners its inspiration from the concept that a children’s library is a place of adventure. The sculpture consists of two nine-foot towers of stacked bronze cubes. Sited upon each column is a mixture of images, texts, and designs that are inspired by children’s literature. The 2nd, 4th and 6thblocks host wooden doors that open to secret chambers hosting unique and distinctive objects taken directly from that same literature.

Time Plaza, Atlanta Detention Center Plaza, Atlanta, GA


This plaza in front of the City of Atlanta Detection Center hosts a sculptural environment based on the notion of time. At the center of the plaza is a bronze mound that echoes the legend from which Peachtree gets its name: a pitchtree that once stood atop a Native American mound. Also on the plaza are etched Granite “carpets” that address the issue of time.
