Description

The “Resonance” project was proposed in order to revitalize the Columbia Heights fountain plaza, metro plaza, and streetscape. The goal of the project was to integrate public space with private and public development, as well as to capture the unique qualities of Columbia Heights. “Resonance” connects the metro along 14th street to the plaza fountain through a series of mosaic medallions. Jann Rosen-Queralt was responsible for the design of the metro and fountain plaza areas, and other artists, selected and trained by Rosen-Queralt, created mosaic medallions along 14th street.

The design is based on kaleidoscope, a sign for celebrating the diversity of the community, and features themes from different locales (Africa, Latin America, North America and South East Asia). The design of the plaza accommodates community events and truly contributes to a more public-friendly area.
