A Tall Story
Metal gets a swish makeover in the hands of San Diego-based studio artist Christopher Puzio. Known for creating sculptural wonders, his designs draw on cosmic inspiration. His latest public work installation, Island Arbor, adjacent to Tom Ham’s Lighthouse on Harbor Island, is mainly a study of geometry, pattern and structure found within nature. Developed to meet the owner’s idea of a trellis adjacent to the restaurant on the bay and also as part of the port’s one per cent for art policy, the aluminium edifice is an interesting take on the shaded canopy and is made out of 2,800 singular welded elements. How’s that for altering the landscape of the Bay area?
