ZILKER ROSE GARDEN
The Rose Garden Gateway is a public art project, and a collboration between several studios. David Santos, commissioned artist, and his team carved the back side of the limestone pillars while the Kincannon team, ARCHAIC carved the front side (photos below). Prompted by the programatic requirement that the gates act as a public signal to the rose garden and to the geological dinosaur footprints within, the Kincannon’s romantically weave the fossils and roses together in funerary style. This is an early example in which the Kincannons explore a myriad of natural forms to produce arresting detail.
