Provided structural analysis and design of a freestanding sculpture measuring approximately 20 feet in height with a 30-inch square base located adjacent to the new Armory Theatre in Portland's Pearl District. Catena worked closely with the artist to conceal an internal stainless steel skeleton core. Leaning approximately 5 degrees off plumb, the sculpture is made out of a light diffusing acrylic, stacked for a total of 415 layers of 1/2" thick material.
