33. Intetra

Isamu Noguchi

Intetra, 1976, steel

Gift of the Ziuta and Joesph James Akston Foundation

Collection of The Society of the Four Arts, 1976.2

Located along the Intracoastal Highway is the monumental stainless-steel sculpture Intetra. Created by Japanese-American artist Isamu Noguchi, the sculpture is in the shape of a tetrahedron—a triangular pyramid composed of four triangular faces, six straight edges, and four vertex corners. If you peak inside the sculpture, you will notice a series of pipes that control a mist fountain. Due to mineral deposits caused by the South Florida climate, this feature had to be disconnected shortly after it was installed in the late 1970s.
