A large-scale oil painting of an imagined urban scene that is created though the fusion of various architectural elements with strong geometric shapes. The foreground shows a line of dark blue/green trees on the left, as viewed across an open space filled with green, light brown and purple. Tall purple-toned buildings stand in the background on the right. The focus of the image is on a large brown steel beam structure with pieces joined at angles. A large beam with holes along its length cuts across the width of the painting, while another beam rises on the left side to support a little cabin at the top and a large rectangular panel with coloured geometric shapes along its right side. In the background, a warm yellow and white sky is pictured close to the horizon, fading to cooler blue tones above.
