Freeport Regional Water Intake Structure
The Freeport Regional Water Authority (FRWA) used a design competition format to seek out an architectural firm for the design of this water diversion facility. Lionakis was successful in winning the commission.
Based on a concept which considered all the site criteria and community issues, the design team found a pragmatic solution that inspired poetic gestures and creates that sense of place.
