“Harmony of Shape”, a stainless steel fountain at Mowry and Paseo Padre Parkway, corner of Washington Hospital Shopping Center parking area. Designed by Mario Chiodo, Oakland; Carlos Parrague, San Francisco, was Project Manager. Contrary to popular speculation, the structure does not represent question marks. The shapes are symbolic of the hospital logo, a heart. Privately owned.
Mario Chiodo, a native of Oakland, attended the Renaissance Art School for gifted children and discovered a passion for sculpting. Trained in the style of the great European masters, Mr. Chiodo likes to sculpt artwork that tells stories.
Carlos Parrague graduated from the University of Wisconsin with a B.S. in Architecture and is a registered architect.
