McClintock Dr / Apache Blvd Station, Tempe, AZ
Neon, water bottles, steel; 2009 Tempe AZ for METRO
A series of illuminated “water bottle” chandeliers marks the top of the Metro Valley light rail station. The new adage: “water is the new gold” draws attention to the preciousness of every water drop in the desert. Enlarged “compact florescent” shape neon tubes, cause the water bottles to glow a range of blue colors, providing a nod to both energy savings and ecological stewardship.
