Hearst Tower Lobby water wall is a cascading glass water feature that stands roughly 20 feet tall in the lobby of Hearst Corporation’s new global headquarters building, a 46-story glass-and-steel skyscraper in New York City. With a construction value at more than eight million dollars, the feature fills the atrium with the sound of cascading water and adds the look of art sculpture even when the water is not running, due to the ceramic and glazed glass tiles that seem to “cascade” from ceiling to floor.
The Hearst Tower Lobby water feature includes multiple pump systems separated into two equipment rooms behind the feature, as well as water treatment equipment including a 7500 gallons per day Reverse Osmosis System that uses the rainwater runoff captured from the roof and stores, treats and incorporates it as a water source for the feature. The Reverse Osmosis System saves Hearst Tower 1.7 million
