RADIANT FOUNTAINS A set of three sculptures by artist Dennis Oppenheim, was commissioned by the Houston Arts Alliance for the Houston Airport System.  The work serves as an icon visible to motorists upon leaving Bush Intercontinental Airport and entering the City of Houston.  Each 60’ tower is wrapped in animated LEDs that begin as droplets plunging downward and then radiate out in a seemingly endless upward flow of light and spectacle.  Metalab performed fabrication consultation and construction management orchestrating installation of the sculptures that tower over the main approach to the airport.
