Joaquin Plaza, San Leandro
The Studio worked with the City of San Leandro to develop an installation in Joaquin Plaza, in the heart of the downtown area. Two sets of chimes now arch over a pathway through the plaza, creating a social and visual center. Benches invite people to sit and watch, or listen. Other seats let users contribute to the soundscape: by rocking, they ring the overhead chimes. Understated graphics provide a bit of sonic information and inspiration.
