    Eto Otitigbe’s Corner is an interactive multiplanar surface that looks similar to and plays off of Socrates Sculpture Park’s preexisting infrastructure. Corner feels both artificial and organic, despite being constructed from concrete, its form resonates as a natural growth or crystal emerging from the ground. Otitigbe designed Corner using parametric architectural software that translates mathematical phenomena prescribed by the Fibonacci sequence of numbers (1,1, 2, 3, 5, 8, 13…). The structure is complete with space for sitting and admiring the view, and is a true extension of the park’s existing architecture, straddling the line between innovation and tradition. Corner provides visitors with new perspectives of the park and its surroundings as yet unseen.
