i'm not sure an enormous featureless blob is the right way to convey "this city is interesting!"
a personal favorite is the giant glow-in-the-dark gummi bear. i would totally bring people here all the time.
we are a near-desert climate, which makes many of the entries with "trees on bridges and balconies"... questionable. i particularly like the way this ewok village seems to be presenting a brand new forest as a sacrifice to the sun god. "please take these trees, O Great One, and burn them in your fierce light and heat, that you may spare us for another year!"
something about this caltrop speaks to me.
this is the closest to the idea of a "fernsehturm" or "space needle", i think. an obelisk that says "i exist because i can. if you see this, you're definitely here. nobody else would build this."
another personal favorite is the coyote bridge. so many big-name design firms submitted bland swooping concrete walkways that they all blur together, but this art student went "what if it was a bridge but it had lots of animal motifs and looked COOL?"
i... i'm not sure this means what you think it means.
or maybe it does, you kinky bastard.
@robey this one is great! it's such a whimsical proposal.
@robey this looks like something the sculptor for Davis came up with. they scattered at least a dozen egg/face statues all over campus, and they were awful.

any giant bird-like creatures will fly up, see that egg, and will either flee in terror.. or try to hatch it.
