Having been commissioned to fulfill the One Percent for Art requirement at 1411 Market Street, the two towers with 754 residential units rising at the corner of Market and Tenth Streets, artist Topher Delaney is scheduled to present her vision for two public art installations to San Francisco’s Planning Commission this afternoon.
One installation will be located on the northerly façade of the southerly 19-story tower in the form of “a cast concrete weave inspired by the Japanese art of basketry.”
The second installation, “cartographic etchings, sculptural stone pieces and sculptural vessel installations with planted materials” will be located in a grade-level plaza at the intersection of 10th and Market Streets, adjacent to the northerly 35-story tower:
While the final art concepts and locations are “required to be submitted for review by the Planning Director in consultation with the Planning Commission,” and the Planning Department is “seeking comments from the Planning Commission as to the concept and location of the proposed public art installation at 1411 Market Street” this afternoon, keep in mind that the concrete weave upon 1411 Market Street has already started to be cast.
