In 2011 Landmarks acquired Circle with Towers, one of LeWitt’s last concrete block structures. Located just east of Speedway outside the main entrance to the Gates Dell Complex, the work can be enjoyed not only as an abstract art form, but also as a social gathering place. Over a period of a few months in 2012, Landmarks worked with an expert from the LeWitt estate and a team of local masons to construct the piece, which had been exhibited in 2005 by the Madison Square Park Conservancy.
This project was funded through the capital improvement project of the Department of Computer Science. Landmarks would like to thank them for their generous support and many others, including:
