"URBAN REFLECTIONS" Milwaukee County City Campus Center, Milwaukee, WI, Aluminum; upper section 90’ long, with 2 lower sections 30’ and 60’
This sculpture consists of a "drawn" metal cityscape based on the skyline and neighborhoods of Milwaukee, that wraps the building at two elevations. With this project we intended to add a more lively facade to the entrance of the building, a sculptural form that will welcome visitors and tell them something about the nature of the building. The images are based on two patterns. The upper level is drawn from the actual downtown skyline of Milwaukee with its distinctive office towers, residential buildings, and factories. Both modern and historic buildings are represented here, with the silhouettes rendered in a simplified linear manner. The ground level structures are drawn from housing styles of residential neighborhoods, in particular the bungalows for which Milwaukee is famous.
