2006
Alameda Free Library, Alameda, CA
Limestone
Height 3ft  Length 4ft
Commissioned by the City of Alameda, CA

The architecture firm designed the façade of this library with 8 designated areas for a medallion design detail. Masayuki Nagase carved a series of reliefs with varying patterns that express the changing light and form of waves. Each relief has a unique pattern and a rhythm like the variation of music. They become a subtle feature in the architecture, bringing the viewer's attention and awareness back to nature.
