The name “Piloti” refers to the columns that support buildings in Venice, Italy. The installation is meant to evoke the feeling of walking through a forest of columns and is intended to reflect Bellevue’s innovative technology sector, love of natural forms, and its creative community.

The installation process for "Piloti" began earlier this year, taking place on-site at Bellevue Downtown Park. Though the installation itself was completed weeks ago, it was only this week that the surrounding fencing was removed, allowing visitors to approach and even touch the artwork. In all, “Piloti” is made up of over 6,600 unique panels with over 60,000 handmade folds and fastened with over 180,000 rivets.

The “Piloti” installation is an important addition to Bellevue Downtown Park and the community as a whole. It reflects the city’s commitment to innovation and creativity and enhancing public spaces with inspiring works of art. Visitors can now experience the awe-inspiring installation up close and touch it for themselves.

So, next time you find yourself in Bellevue, make sure to swing by Downtown Park for an up-close look at "Piloti."
