Jury comments: Jumping Fish Ecological Power Plant Park is innovative, sustainable, and beautiful. It transforms the power plant–an infrastructural building that we might normally try to hide–into a striking landmark that deals with waste in a positive way. The surrounding fish farming pools are both productive and creative, shaping a delightful landscape for people to enjoy. Sited where an older, dirtier power plant once stood, Jumping Fish begins to restore the health and balance of the ecosystem while creating a destination for its community.
