River Glow - Wannemacher Jensen

Wannemacher Jensen Architects – St. Petersburg – River Glow is an underwater installation that is intended to draw patrons to the Riverwalk. For Lights On Tampa, this artwork was temporarily installed bringing the river into play by providing a glimpse into its “night life.”  After Lights On Tampa, and with the completion of the adjacent portion of the Riverwalk, River Glow will be reinstalled as a permanent feature along this pedestrian path and provide opportunities to interact with a lighting feature. http://wjarc.com/
