​The artist worked as a member of the project design team to incorporate public art into this 4.5 acre site that serves as a signature village center and a major transit center for the community. The artwork and design highlight the significance and history of desert ecology and the Salt River for the area. The location includes a twelve bus bay transit center, a revitalizing historic store building, and a large integrated timeline. The main plaza features a Spanish Baroque, hand-carved fountain. It's tulip design references the area's historic flower gardens and Spanish presence. Aggregate terrazzo circles emanate outward from the fountain in the plaza's floor. An inverted canopy covers a portion of the plaza. A meandering river of blue aggregate terrazzo, lined with native trees, shadows the canopy and figuratively empties into a large hand-carved stone bowl at it's end. A metal screen that is patterned with ancient Hohokam symbols covers the bowl. The symbol's cast their shadows into the bowl on sunny days and during rainfall the canopy funnels water into it. The water is channeled from the bowl to a mesquite tree that is planted amongst native plants in a nearby retention basin. ​
