On the largest terrace adjacent to the north wing of the All College Building is a shaded gathering place for students, staff and faculty. The fabric roof is configured to gather and direct rainwater to the stepped, conical sculpture at the NW corner. Water tumbles and spirals down to a shallow trough that extends to a small central garden. From there, another trough leads to a recess of the same geometry as the original “water catch” sending it on its way back into the ground, streams and ocean, to be brought back eventually as rain once again. From “mountain” to “ocean” the water slacks the thirst of sculptural livestock, grazing fields and productive farms. This allegorical garden owes much to Isamu Noguchi’s “California Scenario”. We used his table for the rendering so you would not miss the connections.
