Alexander Calder’s Flamingo Sculpture

Alexander Calder’s Flamingo Sculpture

This bright, exotic looking “stabile” stands in stark contrast to the Bauhaus style office buildings in its midst. And, that was the plan. Though it clashes with Mies Van Der Rohe’s serious glass and steel structures, Calder’s massive curvilinear sculpture succeeds in visually anchoring the office plaza.
