Maya Lin, famous for designing the Vietnam Veterans Memorial while still a graduate student at the Yale School of Architecture, as well as the Women’s Table, in front of Sterling Memorial Library, has designed a new permanent installation for the Storm King Art Center in Mountainville, New York.
Ms. Lin’s ambitious piece, “Storm King Wavefield,” was commissioned by the center, and installation of it, under the supervision of David R. Collens, an artist and Storm King’s director, began two years ago. Set in a shallow, amphitheaterlike depression, once a gravel pit supplying material for the Thruway, it covers 11 acres. Its seven parallel rows of rolling, swelling peaks were inspired by the forms of midocean waves but echo the mountains and hills around them.
