Water Pump Station

Rendered Perspective; Miami, Florida

This proposal takes and old, still-in-use water pump station in Miami and elevates its architectural value to the level of its newly developed surroundings in a meaningful and contextual fashion. This proposal, a monument to water, challenges us to experience water elementally and to reconsider our attitudes and methods of using, processing and distributing it. The station's roof, a rain collector and cistern, supplies water to screens of shifting horizontal glass panes on the North and West facades. The screens collaborate with the concrete walls, the aquarium windows, ground plane water pools, and skylights that invite light to filter through the water cistern/roof, creating active water gardens for public use.
