Mercer Island Station taking shape
PROJECT: Entrance Houses
ARTIST: Beliz Brother (Seattle, WA)
DESCRIPTION: Brother creates elegant sculptural objects inspired by natural forms, often in contrast to their architectural settings. At the west entrance, a bottle-brush-like cluster of oars suspended above the entrance staircase will serve as a reference to the island's boating culture. A second sculpture above the staircase at the east entrance will be a delicate, balancing form of simple shapes, suggesting the bobbing of a boat upon the water.
