I really like the one that shows their faces, but it would get vandalized within a week.

The rendering of the black rock with the tree is the worst, it looks childish compared to the snazzy computer generated ones, but in reality I actually think I would like this one the best. It is very pedestrian oriented. People would know what it is about, vs. the (beautiful) ribbon that would probably be just another piece of public art for most people.

One of them is a house? Or something? On pencils? I don’t get it but it looks to me like a future homeless shelter, and a skateboarders paradise that would probably require some additional design adjustments to prevent that. It already looks abandoned.
