ARCH | NEXUS SAC , News: Luna Cycles featured in CODA WORX

One of the more visible features of our Sacramento office building, Arch | Nexus SAC is the public art installation which doubles as a bike rack and triples as a public seating area. CODA WORX magazine (Collaboration of Design + Art) has recently published an article featuring this installation known as Luna Cycles. CODA’s mission is to raise awareness about environmental and social issues as well as develop community engagement and pride through the inclusion of public art.

The article highlights the unique challenges and opportunities of creating a public art piece for a Living Building. In the article, artist Jay Stargaard says “Living buildings are regenerative spaces that are designed to be self-sufficient, giving more than they take in water and energy resources. The bike rack sculpture communicates the unique values of the renovated building while encouraging community connection.”
