One really great aspect of the stairwell project is the location of the building, adjacent to Denver's Union Station transit redevelopment area. I'm both excited and nervous about this project! It's a bit of a leap… working small and thinking big!
The stairwell project was approved by the client and my first visit to the site was exciting, but also a little worrisome. On the stairwell plans, we'd identified a standpipe (for firefighting purposes) running vertically through the space... however it looked a lot more innocuous on paper than it did in real life! Here are some photos of the rough space under construction in mid-September. It was obvious that the artwork, once installed, needed to somehow overwhelm the standpipe rather than the other way around!
