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_200806Fleming_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.

Drawing inspiration from Modernist masters Luis Barragan and Ricardo Legorreta, water artists David Tisherman and Kevin Fleming crafted this remarkably simple yet sublimely subtle watershape.  Here, the palette departs from the bold colors of those Mexican masters in favor of soft earth tones, but it retains the strong architectural presence and a deliberate minimalism through use of ‘floating’ walls and a staggered edge treatment that offers a visual surprise as well as a distinct sense of balance.
