Wave Field, Francois-Xavier Bagnoud Building, 1320 Beal Ave, North Campus, University of Michigan, October 11, 2020
'Commissioned by the Association FXB in memory of Francois-Xavier Bagnoud (‘82 Aerospace Eng.), and gift of his mother, Countess Albina du Boisrouvray. A pure earth sculpture occupying a square space of 90′ x 90′ and representing a naturally occurring wave pattern, artist Maya Lin described it as “. . . pure poetry. It is a very gentle space that exists on a very human scale. It is a sanctuary, yet it’s playful, and with the changing shadows of the sun, it is completely transformed throughout the day. ‘The Wave Field’ expresses my desire to completely integrate a work with its site, revealing the connectedness of art to landscape, or landscape as art.”'
