Camminando | The Pyramid at Sun Farm

At Sun Farm the sun rising and setting at the solstices and equinoxes are defined by markers or frames.

The Sun Working Pyramid is a new "functional sculpture" resembling the Egyptian pyramids, of course not in scale but in the purpose of solar alignments. Sun Working Pyramid is located at the intersection between Noon Columns and Sun Axis.

In plan the pyramid faces are aligned to the four cardinal points, north, east, south, west. Its elevation can be used as a sundial: the sun apparent path can be traced with the vertex of the pyramid as a reference point.
