Tom Bewley Memorial
South San Francisco, CA
Located on Genentech’s South San Francisco campus, this memorial honors Tom Bewley, a long time Genentech employee and Research Scientist for the Production Research and Development department at Genentech. The design took inspiration from Tom’s interests, including his love for science, patterns in nature, and color theory to create this unique tribute.
The memorial consists of a low, curved seat wall with the quote, “Chaos is the mother of creativity,” and the Fibonacci number sequence engraved into the face and side of the wall. The central ground plane is a field of gravel from which the Fibonacci Golden Spiral emerges, created with river washed La Paz and Aqua Cove pebbles, illustrating order amongst the chaos of the stones.
