ReALIze Event Coverage. ReALIze is a tribute to the iconic boxing legend Muhammad Ali. A 360-degree, two-story structure composed of five miles of stainless steel, two miles of aluminium tubing, and 1,300 boxing speed bags. Viewed from nearly every angle, the result appears to be a massive, boxing-inspired rainstorm, but at the exact right position, it reveals a 2-D vision of the face of Muhammad Ali. The monument was conceptualized by Michael Kalish and designed by Michael Kalish and architectural firm Oyler Wu Collaborative.
