Chuck Heinrich Park
El Paso, Texas
Arch 19’h x 13’w x 4’d
Snakes 5’h x 8’w x 1’d
May+ Watkins originally created Dessert Blossom and the two snakes that flank the arch as the entrance to a special-needs playground. (The tactile snakes were to be in front of the fencing, and lead the way to the entrance.)
Sadly, the playground was never built, but the pieces were relocated to a stunning site, the entrance to Mundy’s Gap. We needed to do a little retrofitting, but we couldn’t ask for a nicer view.
Work with the community to develop the concept and design, narrative statements, concept sketches, sketch models and final models, plans, elevations and construction drawings and fabrication.
