Much like a plant, growth and development need to be nurtured and cultivated. Growth is vibrant within the city, Detroit is a greenhouse for creativity, culture and opportunity.
The planter made of concrete symbolizes construction taking place and resurgence of Detroit's architecture while the shapes mimic the buildings, that serve as landmarks.
The supporting leather piece is a strong material resembling the people of Detroit which are beautiful, resilient and the backbone to all growth taking place in Detroit.
This piece truly captures Detroit being a place for opportunity and growth.
