So, while looking at the triangular support struts inside the Statue of Liberty, and thinking about the girders that make up the Eiffel Tower, I tried to harness their strength without making the design look like graph paper. In the end it comes down to two parallel lines, twin scaffolding poles pointing to the sky.
About the designer
