Project 180 installation

It was almost two years ago that we posted installation photos from a big Silva Cell installation called Project 180 in Oklahoma City. Today, we have gorgeous updated photos to share with you.

The entirety of Project 180 is 100 blocks long, encompassing 8.5 miles of streets and sidewalks. Phase 3 is 10 blocks long and includes all of Walker Ave., Sheridan Ave., California Ave. and Main Street. The Silva Cell installation took place in January 2011.
