A Water Plant Flowers


CLIENT: University of Pennsylvania

ARCHITECT: Leers Weinzapfel Associates, Boston

BUILDING TYPE: Chilled-water plant

It might have spelled design disaster: erecting a 20,000-ton water plant at a key entry point to the University of Pennsylvania. Instead, the university viewed it as a chance to create a visual gateway. The plant was wrapped in a perforated steel screen that shimmers in the sun and becomes a translucent, glowing totem at night. Against the odds, it has become an instant landmark. "There's something about it that just makes you want to love it," says Terence Riley.
