A+A consulted with Kennedy/Jenks Consultants and landscape architect Cheryl Barton on the development of The Water Conservatory at the new headquarters for the Castaic Lake Water Agency. The center featured tours through a state-of-the-art water treatment facility, an education program based in a 6-acre drought tolerant garden, exhibits on water in California, and historical displays chronicling the impact of water on the development of Santa Clarita Valley.
A+A developed a new name and identity program for both the Water Utility District and the public visitor attraction. The Water Conservatory program included prototypes for monthly newsletters, educational handouts for use in schools, as well as a proposed identity for the water agency. The Water Conservatory was both an educational facility and a public park where the community would be welcome to play and picnic among sculptures that explored the story of water in California.
