The Arves E. Jones, Sr. Transit Center at Northgate includes a plaza with a large public art piece called Torre de las Flores. I was hired by the artist to capture photos of the piece along with the plaza where it sits. Here are some photos from this project.
The spire is a reflection of the similar landmark that once marked the Northeast skyline at Sunrise Shopping Center.
The yellow discs reflect the poppies that periodically dot the foothills in the nearby Franklin Mountains.
In addition to photos of the sculpture in its entirety and within the layout of the plaza, I captured some detail shots.
The spire includes multi-colored lighting that runs in fiber optic tubes along the edges to the point at the top.
As the sun sets the lighting scheme takes over and transforms the look of the plaza.
