San Diego Zoo
A pavement treatment was designed to complement the monumental bronze lion featured at the entrance to the San Diego Zoo. A meandering river, embedded with bits of blue glass, curves through abstracted shapes that represent different land habitats. Scattered throughout the area, brass inlays illustrate land, air and aquatic animal species.
The installation included the delineation of different areas of colored concrete using curving strips of brass.
The inlaid brass animals feature stylized, incised line work.
An early concept incorporated overlapping circles and ovals.
