San Jose, CA for Rose Garden Library. Suspension and low relief chimney adornments appear to blast out of hearth, through building into lobby as a rocketing bouquet that celebrates the multicultural efflorescence of literature. Leaves contain script from 14 locally-spoken languages. ‘Rosetta disc’ was inspired by nearby Rosicrucian Museum and the concept of libraries as repositories of written, transformative knowledge. Title is the name of a rose bred by a neighborhood denizen planted in the Municipal Rose Garden across the street.
