Ribbons by Cliff Garten Studio, a design firm based in Los Angeles, California, is an outdoor courtyard that has been given an intricately symmetrical facelift. As its name suggests, the overall feel of the space is one of fluidity, in spite of the structure of the design itself. Not to mention the materials used.
Constructed out of cast concrete and granit, Ribbons by Cliff Garten Studio twists and turns in a variety of ways, thus living up to its name. A site specific artwork for the Art and Architecture Program of the GSA, Courtyard of the Federal Building at 50 United Nations Plaza in San Francisco, California, it boasts a sculptural matrix of paving, seating, fountains and planting. It's a great place to enjoy a lunch break.
