Keiji Asakura collaborated with notable sculptor, Jene Highstein, on this sculpture fountain at the entry to a multi-family residential/office development adjacent to Hermann Park. The entry experience incorporates a significant public art piece consisting of a 21-foot tall red granite obelisk surrounded by interactive stepping stones set within a flowing water basin.
Keiji and Jene merged roles of artist and landscape architect to create an integrated “artwork/sitework”. Stone finishing was realized in Sibhult, Sweden and installed on site by the Swedish stone masons of ZaarGranit.
