This is an initial concept for the greening the grove project; another public art piece to be installed in downtown Boise.... I have been working on this project for a long time now; there have been lots of changes in location, funding, scope, etc. But, this design is proposed to serve as a (green) gateway into Grove Plaza; just off 8th & Main.
This one will be steel, with a stainless steel overlay; bright & shiny to contrast against the trees & the buildings....it will also have recycled glass leaves, kinetic mini wind turbine lights, and will collect solar energy to power leds that will light the glass leaves & the Grove Plaza lettering. And maybe a wifi tower... lol
I will be updating with more info about the project as it comes together; finalizing the design for the approvals process is the order of the week....wish me luck!
