FUNCTION

The sculptures are arranged around an oval water feature, illuminating it at night.
 

CONTEXT

The overall landscape design’s development and structure was determined by its functional objectives: the movement of delivery and transport trucks through the site and of pedestrians between the various buildings.
 

CONCEPT

The jewel of the puritan garden, its focal point, is the water feature illuminated by the lens sculptures. The light given off by the integrated fixtures is reflected and scattered by the lenses cleaved in three. The direction of the scattered light can be controlled with the spatial arrangement of the lenses.
 

PROCESS

The design specifies frost-resistant glazed clay mass as the material from which the identical lenses can be serially manufactured. Platinum paint baked onto the glazed surface creates the light-reflective surface.
