Target Swooping II, Burgos, Spain, 2001
This project required Echelman to work with a national historic monument, the 15th-century carved stone courtyard of Casa de Cordon, where Christopher Columbus was welcomed home from his New World Voyage by Queen Isabella and King Ferdinand. Now used as the headquarters of a bank, the sculpture focuses on energizing the atrium airspace while respecting the delicate environment.
