The only question I don’t think you and I discussed was the orientation of the sculpture. This problem is very difficult for me to settle without seeing the actual site, but I think I can leave it to you and Mr. Pei to solve, taking into account the route which people might be walking towards it, or through it, and also the position in relation to the sun, south, east north, west etc. It would be best if what I consider the front view, (see small print enclosed) had, at some time of the day, the sun shining on it.
