The web site for all professionals and consumers who've made or want to make water a part of their lives

b_400_400_16777215_00_images_archart_200806Platinum_200806Dozier_1.jpgIn December 2004, WaterShapes introduced ‘The Platinum Standard,’ a registry of projects that embodies watershaping at its finest.  Now, as part of our celebration of the magazine’s 100th Issue, Eric Herman offers ‘The Platinum Standard II,’ a fresh set of 20 projects that have graced the pages of the magazine in the past three-and-a-half years – projects that demonstrate clearly that watershaping has become an art form in its own right.

Austin, Texas

Integrating water, sculptures, plants and hardscape details into a private arboretum, the artists at Root Design Company created separate narratives for multiple garden rooms – then pulled everything together in ways that let the clients’ broad interests and tastes exist in a harmony that bridges European and Asian design traditions.  Water serves as an intriguing presence throughout the space, which rises to a teahouse that floats serenely over a vanishing-edge pool above Austin’s city limits.
