Preliminary elevator lobby ceiling design for Public Service Building revealed

PSB elevator lobby
Preliminary design for elevator lobby on level three by Aaron Marx: a relief of St. Anthony Falls.

The City unveiled many of the preliminary public art designs for the Public Service Building at an open house Aug. 7. The designs included illuminated elevator lobby ceilings and artist-designed glass patterns for the 10th level and skyway to the Hennepin County Government Center.

Aaron Marx’s design is a slat ceiling relief of St. Anthony Falls. Working with Wood from the Hood, the project will repurpose ash trees that were going to the landfill. Real-time river data available through the United States Geological Survey will determine shifts of lighting pattern and color. Marx’s themes of the river and mapping connect to the City's years of projects along this span of the river including the development of the Mill District, the St. Anthony Falls Historic District, the Mississippi River Critical Area Plan, the upper river plan and the upper harbor redevelopment.
