Its a cool idea. I will say that I would want the Stone Shoulders to be more active and participatory within the street life of the local community. Perhaps during heavy rains a portion of the structure glowed blue signifying its purpose and function. Then if shelter was needed for safe passage or if someone felt threatened it would glow another color and become a beacon for help. I would also want there to be some level of connectivity with either help centers for battered and abused women or even possibly other help centers for afflictions within the local community. It could really become place of respite and healing both environmentally and socially.

I think the idea of these glowing beacons throughout the city could be really cool. Not only would they allow safe passage, but they would also have the ability to notify the local community if something was wrong...
