“Inspiring both native Charlotteans and visitors alike”

Metalmorphosis was conceived by Count Riprand Arco, Founder and Chairman of American Asset Corporation, when the Count set out to design a visually stunning focal point for AAC's 200-acre office park development - Whitehall Corporate Center.

With it's grand plaza, Whitehall Corporate Center presented an opportunity to create something monumental - a sculpture that would inspire both native Charlotteans and visitors alike.

Count Arco approached internationally renown Czech Sculptor, David Cerny.  Cerny's idea for a one-of-a-kind sculpture was conceived, crafted and executed from its original concept, a testament to his technical savvy and his talent as an artist. Cerny says, "I was thinking about doing something as a centerpiece.  I knew I wanted to employ water from the beginning."  In addition to the water element, Cerny's design also incorporates a complex infrastructure and choreographed movement on a magnificent scale, creating a beautiful synergy of form and function.

It is back, but doesn't work. I was told that the repairs of 3 yrs ago did not work. It is stationary but the fountain works. Still impressive.

Wasn't what I expected. It's located in a business park, and the rotating head isn't working. Still was fun to break up the monotony of I-85. Go when it is sunset!

It is back and working! We were able to see the spin in two different patterns. It was a great break to a long trip. The plaza around was perfect to stretch your legs. We went early in the morning and had the place to ourselves.

Pretty impressive sculpture. Head wasn't rotating but it was shooting water out of it's mouth. It's an awesome place to take pictures!
