Lincoln Tower Plaza

Lincoln, Nebraska

Work to create a new civic plaza in the heart of downtown Lincoln spanned more than a decade, but the result is a vibrant public gathering space surrounding an iconic and original work of art. Designed by the artist to be the ‘living room’ of downtown Lincoln’s entertainment district, the plaza features Jun Kaneko’s 56-foot tall Ascent – a cylindrical tower of color and light. Vireo worked with the artist and the city throughout the implementation phase to bring the design to life downtown.
