Wind, Water & Sun

Ocean Avenue Elementary School

Portland, ME

Five sculptures ranging from 6′-24′ high


This kinetic installation was created as the entrance piece for a new Leeds certified facility. The sculptures use sustainable energy – wind, water, or sun to power blossoms or leaf-like forms. The four sculptures range in height from 6 to 24 feet. The imagery and powder-coated color are based on plant forms that work with the natural environment.

Services Provided

Narrative Statements, concept sketches, sketch models and final model, plans elevations, construction drawings, preliminary engineering drawing for review, fabrication, and installation.

“May & Watkins Design collaborated with the Architect and Civil Engineer to be sure their vision was a creative solution, and a cohesive part of the overall building and site design. Their sculptures, Wind Water and Sun are a wonderful and appropriate piece for the LEED certified elementary school.”Michael Johanning, AIA, LEED AP BD+C
