This pragmatic mound is light weight and covered with periwinkle as a ground cover. An aluminum I-beam, 10 feet long, will act as a bench. Etched in the I-beam is the natural and industrial history of the Pittsburgh region. It is a metaphor to reflect the surrounding hills with their lush vegetation and rivers as an integral part of the terrace.

Pittsburgh the Industrial Garden reflects the energy, bounty, and labor that built the industrial region. This piece is a work that is living, but also a place to rest - to be tranquil. It is Art that cares about the human. Let nature be our guide.
