New structure may draw more to Baltimore
on Friday,November 19,2010 19:11
Architects have created a number of historical marvels around the world, including the Eiffel Tower and the Space Needle. Now, Baltimore hopes to gain attention by erecting a design marvel of its own, according to the Baltimore Sun.
A 236-foot-tall metal sculpture, designed by John Henry, may be built over the Middle Branch waterfront after receiving approval from the city. Developer Pat Turner says that the structure would be the focal point of a new $1.5 million development in the area. He emphasizes that the sculpture would be one of the largest in the U.S., visible from its location at a traffic spot from miles away.
"We want the sculpture to be the center of attention of the project," Turner told the panel, according to the news source. "We're redesigning the project around the sculpture. It does for Baltimore what the Arch does in St. Louis. It would become a symbol of the region."
Architect jobs are projected to grow by 16 percent over the next eight years, according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics. Turner's project may highlight the benefits of building a structure to attract people to a select region.
