Many of the latest works in this series especially those not built of linear objects, are intended to relate by way of their names and configurations to monuments and memorials. The polychromed work, for example, (upper right) is dedicated to underprivileged children around the world. 

Over thirty large-scale  projects have been completed since 1990.

The pyramids and other three- and four-sided verical shapes come about as inevitable outgrowths of tower forms built up from the horizontal elements. To me, this approach connects long grounded historical significance seen in log cabin-like structures to present-day architectural formats.
