Site, Memory, Reflection
Los Angeles, CA
1994

A complex redevelopment project for the city of Los Angeles, Site, Memory, Reflection was conceived for the One Percent for the Arts program. Approaching the site as a puzzle piece in a city puzzle, Albuquerque integrated it into the language of the surrounding architecture and city life. For example, the negative space created by a fountain determined the form of a sculptural element, the pyramid atop the neighboring library is echoed in the work’s circular medallion, and the fifty foot black polished granite monolith had the same measurements and reference the monolithic building in back of it.
