‘MERIDIAN’ now installed at Penn West Pocket Park in Washington DC

As part of the Golden Triangle BID’s “Social Spaces” activations, ‘MERIDIAN’ is now activating the previously empty public space at the intersection of H Street and Penn West, two blocks from the White House.

Featuring a terraced pavilion and a floor mural, MERIDIAN aims to transform this park into a community site for sitting, reading, and socializing outdoors. This site-specific installation draws inspiration from the celestial meridians, or the circular pathways, that run along the Earth from pole to pole. The colored patterns on the wood surfaces correspond to shadows that will be cast on these faces at solar noon on the first day of the year’s upcoming seasons: summer solstice, autumn equinox and winter solstice.
