USC Health Sciences

USC Health Sciences

This engaging water feature is composed of two water walls, each 15 ft. wide by 9 ft. tall, crafted of five vertical panels of varying widths and textures. The bold, large panels are ordered in stepped-fashion to systematically decrease in both thickness and in width, until the pair of walls meet at a dramatic 90º angle. Built with smooth and ridged absolute black granite, plus contrasting white stone framework, this water feature is a visually dynamic element that elevates the outdoor space and threshold of the USC Health Sciences complex.
