There is a concrete block base and the squares were fabricated on site out of Bronze. It was built from dimensioned drawings. It became quite complicated and the craftsmen were essential.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Debra Prinzing added this to Garden Design Essentials: Shape and Mass
A checkerboard-style installation has the feeling of a Tetris video game. Made with two different materials — soft, green turf and slate-colored stone — these stacked cubes framed in weathered steel bring energy and interest to the courtyard. They illustrate how easily a simple square can become a three-dimensional massed form. There are two more factors to this design: shadow and light, depending on the time of day and your vantage point.

Interesting geometric treatment of stair sculpture — juxtaposition of contrasting value & texture helps the eye comprehend its three-dimensionality.
