Featured Project: Citygarden

Location: Downtown St. Louis, MO

City Garden is an urban sculpture park located in downtown St. Louis full of free interactive art, fountains and gardens spanning two blocks.  Hydro Dramatics worked closely with Nelson Byrd Woltz Landscape Architects on the large interactive splash pad, the granite disk, reflecting pool, and the 6’ tall water fall with natural stone.  All of these fountains faced challenges that Hydro Dramatics was equipped to handle.  Materializing this vision of City Garden required the creation of three signature water fountains that creatively blend sight, sound and touch to appeal to all ages. To this end, Hydro Dramatics sought the best ways to use water to provide two contrasting types of ambiance: a cooling, active, splashing ‘playground’ on the one hand and a serene, reflective oasis in the midst of a busy city on the other. Using sophisticated computerization and the newest technology, fountain designers were able to create multi-faceted water features that balance active fun and passive relaxation in the midst of a beautiful sculptural garden.  Warren Byrd commented that “Hydro Dramatics proved to be an outstanding and essential collaborator in helping us and the Gateway Foundation realize our vision for the water elements in this dynamic sculpture park. To put it in the most direct terms, Hydro Dramatics was always up to the challenge of making a design idea come to life.”
