Unspecific Gravity is a site-specific landscape project consisting of a circular reflecting pool with fountain elements based on the H2O molecule, exposed aggregate pathways that formalize preexisting desire lines, and seating based on the atomic structure of the eleven most common elements. Finishing details include the reintroduction of native Florida grasses to the area adjacent to the pool; and tree uplights in the defined drip-line areas surrounding the twelve existing laurel oaks on the site.

The chromed copper fountain elements replicate the atomic structure of a water (H2O) molecule.
Native Florida grasses surround the fountains and pool. View from the top of the Science Center.
Exposed aggregate sidewalks formalize paths worn by years of pedestrian flow across the site.
