Southern Avenue Streetscape

1993

(24th - 40th Sts.) & Patrick Park Plaza, Phoenix, AZ.

 

Concrete, copper tube inlay, river stone, native plant palette. The design of a two-mile streetscape is a pilot project generated by a desire of community groups, art commission and the city to preserve the unique character of South Phoenix. Within the Park Plaza a double spiral channel draws water from and returns to its source - the San Francisco Canal. This motif is a trace of the cultural and agricultural history of South Phoenix from its first canal builders, the Hohokam, to its present.

Commission: City of Phoenix & Phoenix Art Commission.
