Changing Landscape

Item details

Otto's artwork at AIA was inspired by the space it was installed in. He combined layered transparent films on cut sheets of acrylic glass to create an abstract landscape filled with reflective and diffusion qualities. In its entirety, this installation expresses the concept of Resilience. The focus on resilience was requested by AIA who unveiled the artwork at the opening of an annual event filled with activities and workshops for architects.
