He is also renowned for his monumental public sculptures including Riflessi dal Cielo, permanently installed at the Regional Government Building in Milan, Italy; Sound of Steel installed at the Violin Museum, Palazzo dell-arte, Cremona, Italy; and The Three Monoliths installed at the Motanstahl building in Stabio, Switzerland.
