Station #13 of The Route of the Friendship
Herbert Bayer was born in Haag, Austria and lived in Aspen Colorado. He studied at the Bauhaus School in Weimar with Kadinsky as his teacher and the Dessau School. He was director of communication for the Bauhaus School.
The method of construction used for Bayer’s sculpture is one of its most interesting characteristics and distinguishes it by being the only work of art of its size that has been made using this construction method in Mexico.
Standing 16.5 meters high and made of solid concrete with reinforced bars, the work of art presents a play of light and shadow that changes depending on the time of day.
This sculpture is made up of a steel central axis that unites 33 rectangular pieces of solid concrete, that, even though are independent of one another, are arranged on top of each other with a gap of 50 cm between each one, thus creating a very fortunate visual movement.
