Promenade II Building, Atlanta, Georgia
Olympia was designed for installation in front of the Promenade II, an AT&T and Landmark Building in Atlanta, Georgia. Paley worked with architects Thompson, Ventulett, Stainback & Associates, Inc., and Ai Group/Architects, Inc. to design a piece in direct contrast to the architectural design of the building. To play off the monochrome nature of the skyscraper, Paley made this his most brightly colored piece. Olympia serves as a sentinel piece and allowed the creation of a plaza for the building.
