Yayoi Kusama’s astonishing triffid-like flower sculptures are cast in highly durable fiberglass-reinforced plastic, then hand-painted in urethane to vibrant perfection. Together with this unique plaza design by Yayoi Kusama, it is more than just a design feature, but a bold intervention that completely encompasses both the entire outdoor plaza and transcends into the lobby, in Kusama’s signature bright red spots. Kusama directly and deliberately plays with the surface of the landscape in relationship to her “Flowers Bloom at Midnight” sculpture creating a complete iconic and signature environment of her own.
