I wanted to capture the sense of drama, wonder and achievement that was prevalent during that period of American history. But more than an architectural solution was required-I needed to address the human element as well. After many sketches I centered around a quiet moment perched high on one of the steel gargoyles. The solution lay in the juxtaposition of architectural drama and everyday life.
