Permanent public art project for Faulders Studio and SUM.
Project role: Computational designer.
Flow-Zone is a permanent urban installation on the underside of the new MAX Orange Line overpass where it runs parallel with high-traffic McLoughlin Boulevard. Created as a way to activate the 1,700-foot long new Corten steel structure, the raised pattern is composed of nearly 2000 vibrant green aluminum fin elements, or “botts,” individually placed to form an intricate geometric design upon the bridge. The cumulative field enlivens the underside of the bridge, transforming the underutilized and typically dark area into a desirable public space for local residents and passing commuters.
