Theodore Roosevelt Senior High School
Drop is a site-specific sculpture created to look like a drop of water captured by stop-motion photography. Consisting of 46 mirror-finish stainless steel spheres suspended from steel cable, Drop follows the water running through the guided troughs from surge tanks at the upper level, to the small pool at the bottom of the terraced gardens.
The beautiful mirror-polished orbs compliment the exposed water-collection tank and give context and meaning to this rain-harvesting courtyard.
Beginning its journey above the walkway roof, Drop spans 28’ in height and 40’ in length, making a bold and beautiful statement from all vantage points. The repetitive path created by the spheres represents both water flow and the continuous cycle of water in a clean modern way.
