Station # 9
Todd Williams was born in Savannah, Georgia. He studied at the City College and the School of Visual Arts in New York. He taught Art at the Manhattan Country School and the Bernstein Institute. He won various prizes and scholarships and presented exhibitions in the United States and Africa.
The sculpture by Williams stands 7 meters high and is made of reinforced concrete. It is made up of three elements connected by different circular and oval parts that together make up a space, or roof, that offers shelter and allows for passage underneath it. The sculpture was originally constructed on a mound of volcanic rock (which is the natural landscape of the zone) inside of which was the Olympic Village warm up arena that is still used today. This is the work of art with the widest range of colors in the Route. It was restored in 2007.
Location: Olympic Village, athletic track for training
