Wave Oculus

Union Point Pier, Oakland, California. 2006

A 50’ diameter, circular pier covered with thousands of small stainless steel mirrors that are angled down to reflect snapshots of the surface of the bay and create the impression that the surface of the water has been digitized. Ned Kahn also collaborated with the landscape architects, Mario Schjetnan Garduno and PGA Design, on the design of the adjacent park which features landforms modeled after waves, vortices and other water phenomena.
