Pyramid sculpture being launched into Fort Point Channel in Boston

In she goes. See it larger.

With some help from friends, designer Don Eyles today launched Fort Point Channel's latest floating artwork: A pyramid made of plastic blocks painted to look like the paving stones that used to line Boston streets.

Some of the neighborhood's toughest artists - and one little kid - raised the wooden beams on which the pyramid sat and it glided, more or less, into the green water below.

Eyles and a small boatload of folks then pulled the pyramid into the middle of the channel, about midway down the postal annex, and moored it in place.

Don Eyles and crew are scheduled to launch this floating pyramid from Necco Court into Fort Point Channel at 2:30 p.m. today.

Both are examples of sawtooth design, which, at least in the case of Millennium Place, allows for more profit-maximizing "corner" units. Utile explains.
