This project created a distinct gateway that welcomes visitors to Camp Washington. The industrial and artistic history of the neighborhood was a significant factor in the design of the gateway. The large scale sculptural forms are suggestive of the products made in the metal foundries that are common in the neighborhood; the significantly angled sculptures are made of the “weathering” steel panels and bolts providing a maintenance free, corrosion resistant surface. One side and the triangular top of each sculpture tower is painted a bright yellow-orange to contrast with the weathering steel. Gear shapes were translated into the plaza design with large recycled granite curbs and pervious pavers. The sculptures are placed in the circular area of the plaza gears amongst large stones that allow the rust to drip and paint the stones as the metal weathers; a small rain garden was added to the corner of the plaza. Laser-cut letters are pin-mounted onto one of the panels, making the name of the community visible as you approach from the east. The asymmetrical sculptures and unique plaza created an artistic gateway for the community.
