Buoyant

Inspired by the strong physical presence of natural elements as well as the less visible but equally ubiquitous presence of technology and innovation in Redmond, Buoyant responds to and acknowledges the unique context of the city as a place between nature and technology.

Buoyant provides a strong cultural anchor to the park by simultaneously acting as a pavilion, an illuminated water feature, and a platform for performance and digital projection that ensures both the work and the park’s engagement, activation and ongoing transformation for future years to come.

Allen’s Landing, where Buffalo Bayou meets the heart of downtown, is the birthplace of Houston. Flowing west from this historic landing, Buffalo Bayou Park was successfully revitalized in 2010. Now the focus is along the bayou’s east sector. This section has a distinctly different character from the west and downtown; flowing through historically Hispanic and African American communities and through the industrial zones of the Houston Ship Channel.
