Written Words is a slightly skewed square plaza set within a larger plaza at the Broward County West Regional Library in Plantation, FL.  The square is set askew to symbolize a change of orientation, of perception through the acquisition of new knowledge.   Within the square is a granite sculpture of a just opened "book" as well as an arc of text, four trees and concentric granite benches set on alternating squares of colored concrete.  Earthwork grass domes that frame and define the square are repeated throughout the larger plaza.  2007 Craftsmanship Award.  Americans for the Arts Award.  Keefer&Gillman. ($150,000) 2007.
