Cougar Pride

We are very excited to share these photograph's of Jim Isermann's Cougar Walk with you! The weather cleared up two weeks ago and photographer Pete Molick brought out his drone to capture some wonderful images of Jim's piece.

This outdoor public art work is installed at the University of Houston's new football stadium. Consisting of a series of eight foot square pre-cast panels, each of the nineteen panels features patterns of interlocking U's and H's. These were erected as walls and groundwork at the southwest corner of the stadium, and greet visitors as they  exit from the new rail line extension that runs through the campus. The design utilizes recycled glass and black onyx, giving the letters a sparkling appearance in the light.

Metalab oversaw design optimization, fabrication documentation, and project management of the work, with panels manufactured by Gate Precast. The site also features Metalab's signature solar powered lighting product, Ringo.
