Tampa Riverwalk | Tampa, Florida

In an effort to transform its popular waterfront into a more active and pedestrian friendly area, the City of Tampa, FL commissioned RE:site to design art that could be integrated under the Laurel Street Bridge by the Hillsborough River. Inspired by the water current of the river and the rich history of the area, Woven Waves evokes a “crazy quilt” that “stitches” together the various multicultural communities of TampaWhether passing by on foot, bicycle or in a canoe or kayak on the river, the lenticular composition is designed to enhance the experience of a wide variety of people that visit the area daily.

Manufactured by PolyVision, the 54 uniquely imaged a3 CeramicSteel Flexible 4 panels are installed in a custom stainless steel framing system designed by Metalab. The system framing allows the image to change based upon your approaching direction while PolyVision a3 CeramicSteel panels are durable enough to withstand the elements of the river environment. By combining these attributes, passerby have the ability to experience the Tampa Riverwalk in a new and vibrant way.
