Sculpture and Topiary for that POWERFUL Corporate Image

OH my!

They're so LARGE.

There are so MANY of them.

This is qualifies as an edifice complex.

Starting with the large concrete obelisk at the corner of the parking lot, the theme is reiterated in clipped Italian cypress and boxwood balls. This is not accidental topiary. The green sculptures span the entire building which covers the entire block. The business is Swaglok which sells tube fittings, hoses, quick connects, and tubing.

It's so Roman Empire in Southeast Portland. Or maybe it's why the Jolly Green Giant was so jolly.
