Sculptural Seating

There is a huge, interactive public artwork made of travertine at the East Los Angeles Civic Center - Main Plaza. These stepped forms and their grid-like placements were intended to be “a memory in form” of the indigenous architecture of Mexico, in particular that of the Aztecs and Mayans.
"I am proposing an artwork that will bring focus to the central area of the main plaza. I've designed simple stepped seating structures/sculptural forms that will be placed in a circle within the plaza. They will create a space that can be used for quiet sitting as well as function as sculptural form for creating space. It was also developed to create a meeting or ceremonial space that can be used for celebrations, rallies, music, etc.
