Jan '05 - Apr '07
The design process was (briefly)
I was given an element from the Chinese Elements. My element was METAL. My "attribute" from the I Ching was PURIFICATION. My human tendency was CLEANSING. The site was underground and no more than 300 sf. I designed a metal "flower" growing from the Earth. The "pistil" is a sculptural piece that captures water and brings it to a tub in the base. The "petals" direct the sunlight into the bottom of the site for people to bathe/cleanse in the sunlight/water. The review went well.
