Greensboro
Technology Triangle Colonnade - 2016
The eight monumental columns are based on the "New Technology Triangle" that is a major part of the Silver Line transportation corridor. The symbolic triangle, representative of the connection of government, industry, and consumer, becomes a dramatic iconic marker.

Poetry by Virginia Poet Laureates are illuminated in bands around each column base to highlight both a pedestrian and vehicular experience. The sculptural columns create a dynamic connection to the station.
