CONTRAFUERTE

CITY OF PHILADELPHIA

PARKWAY CORPORATION | WURZAK HOTEL GROUP | PHDC

1200 ARCH STREET PHILADLEPHIA, PA

Suspended 20' over an alley in center city Philadelphia, two groups of entangled bodies grapple with the task to sustain, or raise up a bridge that spans the width of the street., The artwork is comprised of thousands of aluminum plates which topographically construct the sculpture's surface. ContraFuerte is meticulously designed to integrate into the existing built environment as part of the city's renowned Percent for Art program.
