Aquarium

May Sun and Oscar Weathersby, 1995

Union Station (Los Angeles), east lobby. Designed for a project called City of Dreams, River of History, which was conceived in collaboration with Richard Wyatt and Paul Diez. The aquarium was intended to replicate the Los Angeles River's freshwater environment. On the walls of the aquarium May Sun etched faces of Gabrielino Indians and Latino settlers, and of indigenous coastal fish, such as minnows, trout and lampreys. Image courtesy of MTA.
