The Reservoir expresses the cultural values of the Tsuut’ina and water conservation practices. The security fence that encloses the buried reservoir is reminiscent of the beaver dam, a reference to the Tsuut’ina being known as the “Beaver People”, while the conical shape of the arrayed wooden elements mimics the shape of a teepee. The curvilinear fence safeguards the reservoir, provides structural support for solar panels, and transforms the project into a bold gateway marker to Taza Park. Using a series of physical mock-ups, the design team tested various configurations of logs, lighting and integrated metal accents to ensure a high level of sculptural quality and integration into the surrounding landscape. The pumphouse building sits within the enclosure with its water distribution system visible to the public. The view into the pumphouse provides an interesting focal point within the Eagle Landing site while educating visitors about water conservation at Taza.
