Utopia Sculpture

Utopia–as the name suggests, is a place of ideal perfections. This project is another masterpiece by Jaume Plensa (Spanish Artist), made up of 4 female sculptures: Laura, Wilsis, Marianna and Julia. This project involves large white marble pieces carved to form the sculpture such that no single piece is identical to the next. Some of the large pieces weigh over 3.5 tons and required very unique anchoring for support and lifting. The project was detailed using steel frames, unistruts, a disc connection and heavy loadbearing steel supports.
