China: The Living Water Garden, Chengdu Sichuan Province
The Chengdu river water garden incorporates Flowform® sculptural eco-technology to enliven constructed wetland areas, that purify town water run off before it goes into the river, refreshed and clean. This landscape of stone and plants creates a natureal design space for families to socialise, learn about and play with water. The project was conceived and completed by Betsy Damon and her team.
England: Nuneaton City Centre, pedestrian area.
New Zealand: Ashburton City Centre, ‘Three Rivers’ public water sculpture
The Ashburton District Council, in NZ’s South Island , wanted to enliven their town centre’s shopping area while integrating the railway track passing through the town. Iain Trousdell and his team designed and installed the project with the Council as a ‘signature sculpture’ that portrayed the entire region in the centre of the town.
New Zealand: Hastings City Centre, Hauku Nui sculpture
(Merit Award 1991, New Zealand Planning Institute)
Iain Trousdell and his group were commissioned by the Hastings City Council to create a large central feature to serve a multitude of purposes. The sculpture, located in the heart of the commercial area, brought flowing water and negative ions into the central shopping area, in the mixed style of Mission Architecture and Maori design.
New Zealand: Lake Te Ko Utu in Cambridge, Waikato
Lake Te Ko Utu, a 25 hectare lake, was dying from eutrophication and lack of movement. One arm of the lake was especially stagnant, and has been rejuvenated through the use of our Flowform® Superstream™ cascades, where one metre of our eco-technology has the same rejuvenating effect as approximately ten metres of natural stream movement, while also being a beautiful walkway and playground for visitors to the park. Designed and completed by Iain Trousdell and colleagues.
New Zealand: Putaruru ‘Blue Spring’ Waterpark
The South Waikato District Council wanted an inviting urban centre park to enliven and refocus Putaruru town, attracting more visitors from the many thousands of cars that travel through the town north to Auckland. Iain Trousdell created a water park with Richard Greenwood that fulfilled this design brief and more. In 2009 the central Flowform® sculpture was refurbished in order to continue the active function it fulfills.
