Portal, Cuyahoga County Justice Center

Isamu Noguchi
steel, painted black, 1976




Views looking toward the front of the Justice Center

Noguchi entitled a number of works "portals" that have a kind of arched shape. This abstract tubular form changes its shape, depending on the viewing angle. But in every direction, it has a kind of monumentality--and it is 36 feet high.
 

Center: a view from the side; right: a view looking from the Justice Center toward the street (or east)

 

Views from the left side--or looking northeast or north toward the Cuyahoga County Court House
