Public Art?


Pictured here is a public plaza located at the intersection of South 5th Street and the newly redeveloped Nicollet Mall in downtown Minneapolis. As you can see, when I visited, there was a construction crew working to install a blade from a wind turbine – presumably a ‘public’ art piece sponsored by Xcel Energy, which is located on the northern side of the plaza. I found this plaza, and nearby Nicollet Mall, to be a good example of practical application of some of the design criteria noted in the documentary we watched (look at all the space for seating!).
