Di Suvero began working on Pyramidian in his Long Island City, New York studio in 1986. It came to Storm King unfinished in 1995 and was installed for di Suvero's retrospective exhibition. At that time, the space inside the pyramid was empty, and a 60-foot beam was placed in the field parallel to the sculpture. For a time, the beam served as a bench for viewing Pyramidian. In 1998, di Suvero finished the work onsite. He used the 60-foot beam to create an inverted T-shape, suspended by cables inside the pyramid. Today, it serves as a visual anchor in the South Fields.
