As part of the Shitsurai Art International Competition, Crater Lake was one of the winning art installation projects to be installed in Kobe, Japan.  This structure has all the features I adore in a design – simple, elegant, & functional. Can you imagine this art piece lined along one of the piers or maybe even Fishermen’s Wharf here in San Francisco?   This installation can serve a multitude of functions – a bench to rest, an area for the kids to play on and I just know all the skateboarders are eyeing this wondering what trick they can do off this.
