Reflecting Pool (Ego/Eco)

The historic Bethlehem Baptist Church, designed by Rudolph Schindler in Los Angeles, has undergone numberous ill-concieved renovations through the years.

Reflecting Pool takes advantage of the unsightly downspouts installed during one of these renovations, and transforms it into a post-industrial baptismal font/ rainbarrel for washing ecological sins.

Interestingly, it is illegal to collect rainwater in LA. 

Sonotube, mirror plexiglass, Anastatica hierochuntica, Florida water.
