Earlier this year, a kickstarter campaign successfully funded the creation of a statue of Nikola Tesla. 722 backers gave a total of $127,260. Saturday December 7th the statue was unveiled in front of a building in Palo Alto. The area does receive a fair amount of traffic but is not easy to find a place to park nearby. I would best describe the building’s architecture as brutalist as many of the older office buildings were built in Silicon Valley in that style.
To see the statue yourself, the building is at the corner of Sheridan and Birch Street just south east from the California Avenue restaurant district of Palo Alto. For more information on the project visit their webpage.
