Functional art elements included very high requirements for parking garage ventilation, visual screening of the parking garage, wind loads, and seismic movement along with the aesthetic requirements of representing the community as a whole and speaking to people individually. ALFA used a custom MESH approach to pattern with the anodized ParaClad-200 support system and a Native Turquoise Patina Powdercoat.
The lenticular design of the panels allows for more ventilation and created a large canvas for the anamorphic tree images to be seen from opposite ends of the architecture.
