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_200806Bower_2.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.

Working on a private island off the Connecticut coast, watershape designer Brian Van Bower developed an elegant, rectilinear treatment that deftly combines wood decking and a seamless water-in-transit effect with spectacular views in every direction.  But there’s more to the good looks than meets the eye:  A large portion of the composition juts out over a bluff that reaches high above the rocky shore – execution that required careful, sophisticated coordination of everyone involved.
