Cyrus Field

"When I built 'CYRUS FIELD' in 1970 I wanted to do something that would incorporate the natural world—gather it in rather than displace it... Marble, redwood, and cement block wind for over a mile through the woods... Because of the scale of the project and its intimate relationship to the living world... you have to discover it step by step as you walk through the forest."
