The first set of sculptural sound walls is composed of an undulating wave plated with Corten steel shaped into simple concave and convex folds. The rust-hued colors reference the earthen surroundings and imbue warmth into the freeway landscape. In contrast to the first, the second set of sound walls exchanges red hues for a series of repeating blue blades set in front of a long translucent, edge-lit acrylic wall sandblasted with a digital pattern. The final and third series of walls employ gabions and heavily planted earth berms for a more naturalistic style. Installed in phases, the final design was completed in late 2005.
