It is intended to be integrated as part of its environment and/or interactive with its surroundings and encompasses a wide expression that may extend beyond traditional forms.
Examples may include, but are not exclusive to sculpture, statues, murals, functional art (seating, lighting, manhole covers, sidewalks, etc.), forms of landscaping, and the like."
