Jay Stargaard and Deanna Marsh partnered with Arch|Nexus SAC to create Sacramento’s newest public art sculpture at 930 R ST. Arch|Nexus SAC transforms a former warehouse and downtown street corner into a neighborhood friendly, state-of-the-art ILFI Living Building Challenge Pursuant Building.
The building is the first reuse living building challenge in the world and level 4 LEED certified. Converting its 200 square foot streetscape into a functional, friendly, multi-use space for parking bikes and taking breaks invites community interaction.
While the building references the river and reed landscape of the original site, the hand-hammered, stainless steel sculpture reflects the memory of motion from the historic corridor of covered wagons and trains to modern transportation. Interlocking rings support eight bikes. Cantilevered natural-edge wood benches offer ample seating. Kiln-formed glass moon phases fluidly highlight the playful name, “Luna Cycles.”
