Overview

This project was designed, fabricated and installed for the Miami Springs Aquatic Center. The theme of the artworks was the movement of and in water. All murals are made of hand-glazed tiles, which were then fired and installed outdoors. The murals are located around the outdoor pool and water slide on the outer walls of the complex buildings. Dimensions vary with the biggest mural at 12 feet by 6 feet and the smallest at 6 feet by 3 feet.

Goals

Our goal was to create a whole artistic complex with multiple views by placing murals visible at every corner. We wanted our images to be inspirational and vibrant to create a positive experience. The designs equally enhance and complement the modern architecture.

Process

Alfredo and Pavlina equally participated in the design, production, installation and project coordination.
