Rivulet at Brandywine Plaza
This installation will be located on the edge of Brandywine Road behind Park Road Shopping Center. Inspired by the rivulets and creeks of the area, "Rivulet" flows and gathers into a large thread of water made of steel. Thousands of plants originate at the sculpture and weave throughout the site, setting the stage for a dramatic visual experience.
Sycamore at the Selwyn Trailhead
The American sycamore is the grand tree of the floodplains throughout the Southeast, including the Little Sugar Creek. Exfoliated bark and leaves from sycamre trees can be seen floating down the creeks. The inspiration for "Sycamore" came from this natural process. Three concrete textured seats in puzzle pieces stylized from sycamore bark offer a seating area at the Selwyn Trailhead, a pocket park located at the corner of Selwyn Avenue and Park Road containing a spur trail to the XCLT. The seats are set within an exposed aggregate plaza and wrapped in a Piedmont prairie of native grasses and wildflowers.
