William Pye Water Scupture

Water Tower

I was engaged as a consultant to Nicholas Hare Architects to develop with them a concept for a water sculpture for Cardiff Oval Basin. The architects were in the process of transforming the reclaimed dry dock into a meeting place, clad in decking and with good lighting, which has turned out to be a great success with the public.

The resullt of the collaboration was a 21 metres high stainless steel structure covered in a constant flow of rollwaving water at the northern end of the plaza.

The tower features heavily in the Torchwood television series.
