Mediums: Steel

Location: Gene Leahy Mall; Gene Leahy Mall Farnam street side, lower level near the water, east of 13th Street.

Owner: City of Omaha (Parks Recreation)

Series: Take A Seat

Additional Information: Donated by HDR Architecture, LOOK Architectural Coatings, Chris Kemp and Great Plains Polymers.The three guiding principles for the design were: that it reflects the design principles of Landscape Architecture; that it has a back to be comfortable for all age groups and that it is long lasting. The inspiration for the three seated bench is the natural succession of plant material from budding to full bloom; much like the growth of the City of Omaha. This progression is depicted in three acrylic panels, one on each of the seat back panels. The smooth metal framework is a blend of smooth curves and strong geometric lines that reflect the natural curved edges of the water and the geometric grid line of the surrounding City’s built patterns. The hope is that this bench welcomes the user to sit back, enjoy the surroundings of our beautiful City and REFLECT.

Mediums: Steel

Location: Gene Leahy Mall; Gene Leahy Mall, corner of 10th Street and Douglas

Owner: City of Omaha (Parks Recreation)

Series: Take A Seat

Additional Information: Donated by Studio 360 Architecture. The design team wanted to create a unique bench that meets the needs of pedestrians, bicyclist and city transit users. It was important to create a bench that was inviting, comfortable and timeless. This was done by using a simple form that is iconic of a bench; this allows the user to focus on the function of bench first and foremost while the design is played up in the details. Gene Leahy Mall was a major contributor to the design. The bench pays homage to the park by using similar colors and construction techniques. The bench mimics the cast-in-place concrete and wood inserts of varying depths used throughout the park; the primary steel elements are painted orange to match the light fixtures that surround the park. Serenity is constructed of steel (tube and plate) with a concrete anchor and base. The simple form of the bench also includes the ability for temporary bike storage. Concrete base was cast in place concrete with “Dur-a-pell” Anti-graffiti coating by Chem Probe. The tube steel is powder coated in white while the plate steel is powder coated in orange.

Owner: City of Omaha

Series: Wind & Water Exhibition

Additional Information: This piece is designed to look different from every angle. The cutouts shadow and give dimension to the space without filling it. The shadows are as important as the sculpture itself. I want people to play with the space, shapes and shadows and be interactive with the art by looking through it, touching it and going inside it.
