1977 - 1978 Sundial Plaza
Hunter’s Point, San Francisco, California
The Sundial Plaza is a functional observation platform (50 feet by 75 feet / 15,20 meters by 22,82 meters) and includes an amphitheater which provides sheltered seating in a wind-free area for theatrical performances. The yellow steel indicator (gnomon) is 75 feet / 22,82 meters long, visible from the entire region, and is a prominent landmark in the city. The community’s children participated in the project with drawings and poems which were engraved into the concrete pavement of the Plaza. The Sundial reads the time at five-minute intervals.
