Street Street Art

Classic iconography slightly reinvented and put back onto the street ... I like the idea that you can visit the entire 'set' around the streets of Miami. Every city should have one.

Iconic Site

I've seen this project a few times and this location reminds me of the final rooftop fight scene in Highlander ... still love the idea by sans facon that challenges clients on regeneration and reuse.

Title Deed

Another lovely example of monopoly iconography put into public art as one of the most meaningful and visual forms of property and finance. Make it big and make it green. Work is by Canadian artist An Te Liu.

Community Memorial

Collaborative work between artist, Maggie Smith, and Cutler Anderson Architects. Nice simple idea of real life and real people becoming an interactive memorial and artwork. Came across this example when thinking about how individual thoughts can be collected together to create a greater and more significant whole. It is the Armed Forces Memorial at Norfolk, Virginia.
