Field of Towers

Marina Walk, San Diego, California



Field of Towers imagines a city densley packed with colorful towers. This wave of towers compounds waves with wavelengths: an undulating field of towers reflect color from building to building, proliferating the range of hues. Five pastel tones are illuminated by LED lights, causing colors to bounce and multiply. The sheered tops of the towers at times catch the color of the sky, appearing as a blue surface above city stripes. Sited in a new waterfront plaza, the Field of Towers installation guides pedestrians from the bustling Harbor Drive to the marina. Emerging from the site’s gridded paving, square, powder-coated stainless steel tubes form waves.
