The abstract form is representative of the artist’s later works. He went from a series of sheet metal flowing bird forms to the extreme angular and asymmetrical stacked beams and rectangles. The sculpture sits at the front entrance to the School of Architecture, which is most appropriate since the artist studied architecture at the Academy at the Hague, the Netherlands.
