PLACE to go
Equal parts lounge chair, jungle gym and bench, this lime and black sculpture in Westlake Park was made with room for everyone. Built by local architecture, art and urban design studio PLACE, the piece was shaped by more than 1,100 precisely cut wooden posts. Its surface was airy and inviting while the posts were tightly grouped to prevent stray feet or hands from getting wedged. Its open design meant visitors could enjoy lunch while kids tumbled across its gentle swells with room leftover for friends to catch up or tourists to rest weary feet. By stimulating activity and interaction, art helps to bring more people and life into the parks and enriches downtown.
