The primary goal of the project is to create a new, distinctive, world-class public landmark in downtown San Jose, Silicon Valley’s largest urban center. It will be a gathering place that produces civic pride and spurs economic development. Our purpose is to inspire future generations with an urban masterpiece. This powerful and enduring icon will be the place every visitor MUST SEE when coming to Silicon Valley—and where locals go often because they LOVE it. San Jose is the largest city in Silicon Valley, an area that fuels the imagination of the world as the heart of innovation and technology—yet the region is still without a bold iconic landmark to define itself. Given its Mediterranean climate, a highly educated and diverse work force, proximity to world-class universities, and access to immense financial capital, the region is poised to make a statement that defines and unites the citizenry’s technological prowess in harmony with our natural surroundings.
