Sometimes an orientation meeting can be very Disorienting.
|........As in realizing that my proposed sculpture won't work with the site.|
the site felt more like this photo.
Yes, there are trees, but there's also a major highway, full of cars going fast.
Then there will be trolley trains, a narrow planting buffer, then a bike and pedestrian "trail".
Trail implies a walk in the woods. Think freeway for bikes and fast, able bodied walkers.
I'd proposed a tall, vertical carving. There's no vista in this section. No one is going to be looking up if it feels like that would endanger your life.
This site needs anchoring and a feeling of safety, a place to pause by stepping out of all the traffic.
Time for plan B.
