Description of Work:
Visitors approach by a red boardwalk or intersecting bridges over a water garden. Above their heads, visitors see massive red, netted “sky lanterns” moving in the wind. Below they see “water drawing” amidst the reflections in the pond.
"Water Sky Garden" transforms the plaza surrounding the Richmond Olympic Oval into a permanent art environment for the community. Echelman’s design engages the space all around the viewer – water, sky, and pedestrian pathways – to create an immersive whole using rock, wood, water, air bubble fountains, steel, netting, and light.
