Goals

This is the third project we have done for Long Beach Transit. They consider our LithoMosaics as part of the LBT branding. For this site, at the tip of Alamitos Bay, where their buses meet their Aqualink water taxis, the San Gabriel River meets the Pacific Ocean and the Pacific Flyby passes Long Beach, we designed a work that thinks about schooling and flocking of sea life and air life.

 

Process

As the LBT is also known for their white furniture, we partnered white with blue and some reflective bright colors. The effect is like that on the surface of the water. A small retaining wall behind the benches is clad in triangular sections of silver Quartzite.

 

Additional Info

It's a beauty - and shows what Brailsford Public Art and Shaw and Sons can do with LithoMosaic. And remember, this is a small one...!
