2011 • Brightwater Wastewater Treatment Facility, Woodinville, WA
Concrete, stainless steel, plants, reclaimed water. 15' x 20' x 600'.

At the main entry to the Brightwater Wastewater Facility, Bio Boulevard and Water Molecule exemplify poetic civic gestures in support of a sustainable water use mission. A series of large cast concrete figurative elements support an episodic sculpture tableau consisting of a large water molecule and a long conveyance pipe transporting reclaimed water. The system intends to facilitate bio mitigation through hydroponics as well as being a water feature. The expressed water is then offered to a reconstructed wetlands and to recharge ground water. The concrete figures suggest a heroic collective effort reminiscent of public works projects of past infrastructure endeavors.
