Flower Sculptures

Dayton Children's Hospital

Dayton Childrens Hospital Flower Sculptures Lobby By Roto 2

Six years after creating and installing the Dragonflyer kinetic sculpture at Dayton Children’s Hospital, Roto returned to install another moment of delight in the hospital’s new specialty care outpatient center. The new flower and raindrop sculpture fills the new five-story 152,000 sf facility with colorful light and whimsy.

Designed to share a sense of flight and freedom, major elements of the sculpture include five bespoke flower sculptures constructed of hardwood and metal with acrylic flower petals coated in a dichroic film that cast iridescent splashes of color throughout the new tower. The flowers are accented by a stream of water drops that wind through the space.

Custom lighting design elements also accentuate the sculpture making the pieces just as viewable from outside, extending the flowers’ joyousness beyond the building.
