Sculpture and the Ann Hamilton Tower

Some people dream dreams, other people build their dreams. 

All Photographs from Architizer website

Artist Ann Hamilton worked with Jensen Architects to build a one of her dreams in a beautiful setting in rural California. It's a 24 foot diameter  tower as a performance space. Two staircases, one for performers, the other for audience, wind up the tower from a pool of water at the base to the open sky at the top of the tower. 

Wouldn't you love to hear the acoustics? A little Meredith Monk, David Lang or perhaps the Hilliard Ensemble?
