When the new Eskenazi Hospital opened last December,
the thing that stood out was the artistic use of color
on the main buildings' surfaces. However, that creative use
of material did not extend to the multi-level
parking garage, which has had a very bare-bones
appearance to it. That is, it did until this past week, when
workers began installation of a series of dark blue,
yellow, and ocher metal panels on the south side
of the building.
Facing Michigan Street, the segments are set at
varying angles, designed to change their appearance as the
sun moves across the sky. The photos were taken
Tuesday afternoon and show the project to be about
one half to two-thirds complete.
When done, the installation will be stunning,
especially when the sunlight gives viewers the impression
of constant movement of the yellow wall.
