UH FLEMING LAB SCULPTURE- 'H2O'

 ‘H2O’ is an outdoor sculpture proposed for the exterior of a pending new Teaching Laboratory at the University of Houston’s Main Campus adjacent to the future Cougar Way. ‘H2O’ is an oversized sculptural model of a water molecule and represents an overlap of both the chemical and biological fields that the building services. The installation becomes a playful exterior draw and icon for the building while its scale is engaging and suggestively personified. ‘H2O’ was proposed as a cost effective solution fabricated of precast concrete, but could easily lend itself to more traditional outdoor sculpture materials such as metal.
