Collection and Transformation is installed on the exterior of the Center near the Northeast Plaza and contains laboratory glass and hand blown microbial forms in a mirrored, illuminated environment. The hand painted and acid etched glass window, It's All About the Water, bring the science of the laboratory and the treatment plant into the main gathering space of the interior and makes present the watery world of the process train.
