Meander, a series of concrete and resin structures, takes inspiration from Buffalo Bayou

The Houston Downtown Management District (Downtown District) has installed a new permanent public artwork in Market Square Park. Meander, a series of raised cast-concrete troughs filled with glossy pigmented resin, mimics Buffalo Bayou’s physical form and route, giving park visitors a new view of the familiar body of water. The site-specific sculpture—part seating area, part playful artwork—was conceived and created by Falon Mihalic, founder of Falon Land Studio. Meander is now permanently on view.

A landscape architect and interdisciplinary artist, Mihalic and her eponymous studio are known for traditional landscaping projects in public spaces and private gardens as well as public art installations, which are often inspired by nature.
