Almost complete, the artwork “Building Blocks” casts early morning shadows on the station plaza.
Inspired by people and objects in motion, Luca Buvoli’s artwork directs commuters to the entrances and platform. At the platform level, artwork is attached to 80' vertical columns in this underground station.

R & R Studios, the team of Roberto Behar and Rosario Marquardt, created a landmark for the neighborhood on the plaza at 12th Ave NE and NE 66th Street. Their sculpture “Building Blocks” is a 49-foot-tall, 21-foot-wide, and 2-1/2 -foot deep stepped pyramid painted in bold tones of gold, yellow, green, blue and red. Anchoring the south and west edges of the plaza, the artists also created two deep green floral-patterned benches, which sit on a “carpet” of black concrete inset with a pattern of concentric stainless steel rings.
Luca Buvoli has created a pathway using bold, graphic artwork suggesting runners and cyclists in motion, to help guide passengers from the station’s exterior to the underground platform. An animator and installation artist, Buvoli’s artwork is inspired by film and artwork of the Italian Futurism movement and is a continuation of his larger body of work about people and objects in motion.
