The project explores the intersection of art, activism, environment and community while highlighting the beauty and demonstrating importance of Lady Bird Lake, our city’s life line. S R E T A W N O M M O C The wetland is comprised of two components: ● ● the wetland mat a natural sculpture that takes the shape of a nest. ○ Dried invasive bamboo, symbolizes, the rapidly spreading change that the city faces today. Floating wetlands are a way of harnessing the filtering action of nature and bring it to urban waterways, like Lady Bird Lake. Seven native species were planted and as they grow, the roots of these plants will create surfaces for microbial action to breakdown the excess nutrients and contaminants in the lake. S R E T A W N O M M O C Nests are symbols of safety, home, and protection. This nest serves as the ephemeral shelter for a floating wetland of native plants that are designed to filter and clean toxins from the lake. Similarly, when we protect the native Brown and Black communities of Austin, who have been the backbone of cultural creation for generations, we can also begin to clean the toxins of our city’s ancestral trauma. Common Waters is a reminder that Lady Bird Lake is an essential part of our city’s identity and how we can come together as a community to protect it for future generations. The natural world puts many demands on a built structure. ● ● Engineers worked out an anchoring system, to keep the wetlands from being swept away in the strong currents that occur …
