Designed by Donald J. Tellalian, AIA, at Tellalian Associates Architects & Planners LLC, Boston, and fabricated by A&A Industries Inc., Peabody, Mass., the sculpture reaches 16 feet high and utilizes 3/4-inch aluminum triangular panels on a 1/4-inch structural stainless steel frame. Barletta Heavy Division, Boston, was the general contractor, and each year Jerry Rigging Corp., Ashby, Mass., reconfigures the entire sculpture.

Honoring the Best of the Best

Every month, the projects that grace the pages of this magazine use metal in unique and different ways.

There are many projects showcased in the pages of this magazine each year, and once a year, we get the opportunity to honor the best of the best.
