Pacific Gate public art and plaza, downtown San Diego

This plaza space adds to the urban life of downtown San Diego providing planting beds, a slender pool with shooting bubblers at its end and a spectacular piece of artwork. A huddled figure made of white metal letters and characters from various languages anchors the end of the water feature, as well as this important intersection of ┬áthe ┬ácity’s two main thoroughfares, Broadway and Harbor Drive.
