Welcome to the October issue of CODAmagazine, where we share the best design + art projects from all over the world. The magazine is published once a month by CODAworx.com – we’re an online community for artists and design professionals to showcase their work, collaborate with one another, and earn recognition for their projects.


Water Forms is the organizing principle of this month’s issue. Artists, designers, architects, and engineers create dazzling water displays, artfully integrating nature’s most essential substance into our downtowns, community spaces, commercial hotspots, and residential gardens.

CODAmagazine documents the world’s latest water projects as they are brought to life in an array of media; we have selected 25 eye-catching, thought-provoking works where collaborative teams transform public, commercial, and residential spaces through inventive water practices and portrayals.

Within this issue you’ll find a multi-dimensional feature in the heart of a burgeoning Beijing landmark, a natural imagery-laden plaza in Baltimore, a series of sculptures at a flood control green belt, and a Chapel Hill installation where color and fog contemplate the hydrologic cycles of the environment.

Full of engaging works that utilize, observe, and reflect upon water, this CODAmagazine takes you from city streets to waste treatment facilities, and New York City ponds, celebrating water’s endless amount of sculptural forms and real-world functions.

We hope you will subscribe to CODAmagazine on Flipboard to receive the best design + art projects from all over the world, delivered to you, free of charge, each month. We look forward to sharing more of these incredible collaborations with you.
