Triumph Sculpture

Category: Play
Palo Alto, CA

Triumph is a 5,000 square-foot oval steel sculpture which consists of seven ovoid forms that represent the seven branches – Army, Marines, Navy, Air Force, Coast Guard, U.S Public Health Service, and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration – of the military engaged in our country’s defense and well-being, unified, strong, and uplifting.

The tall vertical sculpture, central to the oval, is meant to be part of the integrated front aesthetic in conjunction with the architecture to punctuate the identity of the new rehabilitation center. The sculpture itself is like a “line drawing” in space. One’s eye can pass through the sculpture and see the architecture clearly.

There are several granite sculptures, surrounding the steel sculptures, which are meant to be felt or read by the visually impaired. Triumph celebrates and appreciates the dedication, service, and sacrifice that veterans have given to our country.
