The Pitch Room at Alexandria's Torreyana location is a space catered towards client pitches. For this project we created an art piece as well as some shelving and a bar die for their adjacent bar zone.
The fourteen foot art piece represents Alexandria Real Estate's engagement with the science and technology community of San Diego, CA. Over 300 pieces of wood and glass make up the striations of this installation, reminiscent of a financial bar graph. The wood forms were CNC-milled to illustrate the San Diego topography while the glass pieces represent the ocean, making the San Diego coastline pop in brilliant contrast. The brass dots indicate the locations of ARE's properties and Science and Technology clients. Engraved into each piece of wood is a word that embodies ARE's mantra. As you progress from one side of the piece to the other, the striations plunge and climb like the landscape they represent, giving you a unique experience from each point you stand.
