We’ve been keeping our eyes peeled on construction at the new downtown courthouse with a particular fascination: the artwork in the outdoor plaza and inside the lobby by renowned local artist Robert Irwin. The outdoor piece involves hundreds of Ligustrum hedges grown and arranged in specific dimensions. Inside is a 33-foot-tall acrylic prism emancipated from a university basement.
I heard that the landscape architects at Spurlock Poirier walked through the project for the last time today, and now the plaza and open spaces outside, including the hedges installation, are open to the public.
Brad Lents, from Spurlock Poirier, wrote me a note to say you can also catch a “small glimpse” into the lobby, where the prism is already making some interesting effects as it refracts sunlight.
Have you meandered the ramped walkway through the hedges? Leave us a note below about your experience.
