Below the surface of city streets, an intricate system of pipes and culverts supports the urban infrastructure. Imagine the many twists and turns they make along the way, all while carrying water to a thirsty population. This design mimics the twists and turns of those conduits in a modified zigzag pattern, complete with a bit of graffiti to add to the urban feel.
