Topography 1 Seating Sculpture

Located near a retail street West Palm Beach, this creates a featured amenity for visitors and locals alike. A sculptural seating piece made of laminated natural stone slabs acts to retain a rain garden managing storm water on site. The project drapes all native stone materials across the site to create a wave-like form. These stone slabs start from the plaza paving and sweeps upward to create the bench for people to sit. Visitors can sit in the shade of the canopy trees and view the integral art piece, or interact with the sculpture itself, finding ways to sit, stand, lie and climb.
