Illuvium

Moffett Place, Google Campus

Sunnyvale, California

2015

Description

The Moffett Place public art plan is composed of a series of landscape sculptures that comprise the six entry plazas for Google’s campus in Sunnyvale, CA. The focal component of each plaza is an elegant bronze fountain, in an S form or Z variant, resting on a granite pedestal that corresponds in shape. A circular ripple pattern, similar to the effect of dropping a pebble into water, emanates from the center of each fountain extending into a series of concentric rings in the paving and seating area surrounding each fountain. Benches are made from recycled cast concrete conforming to the curves of the plaza paving. Their scalloped relief is echoed in the bronze fountain, bronze landscape screens and a luminaire that frame each plaza. The surrounding landscape is lushly planted with grasses in arched rows hugging each plaza’s shape. These grasses create visual layers with bronze screens enveloping the viewer within a single image of landscape and sculpture that becomes a point of delight at the entry of each campus building.
