Presentation by Jim Garland, Founder & President of Fluidity


James Garland founded Fluidity Design Consultants in 2002 after twenty years of practice in water design, architecture and urbanism. Fluidity Design Consultants is a premier, Los Angeles-based water feature design and engineering firm with an international practice.

Fluidity was established to create a new generation of water features conceived, crafted, and engineered for a more sustainable century with a fresh, invigorating aesthetic. Jim’s work in such projects as the Hearst Building (New York City, USA), Metropolitan Museum of Art (New York City, USA), VivoCity (Singapore), Dubai Festival City (Dubai, UAE), Sheikh Kalifa Medical Center (Abu Dhabi, UAE), Myriad Gardens (Oklahoma, USA), Grand Park (Los Angeles, USA), Long Mu Bay (Hainan Island, China), Lusail Parks (Doha, Qatar), Santa Monica City Hall (Santa Monica, USA), Daesung D3 City (Seoul, South Korea), Z-15 Tower (Beijing, China) and 250 West 55th Street (New York City, USA) are all examples of Fluidity’s advanced design initiative.

Jim has lectured at Harvard University, London’s Architectural Association and the American Academy in Rome. In 1998, two of his sketchbooks were selected for exhibition at the Smithsonian Institute’s National Design Museum.

Concurrently with directing Fluidity’s design efforts, Jim is writing two books about fountains, one covering a 2,000 year history of best examples, and the other focusing on Fluidity’s projects, with speculations on the future of water design, the topics of this presentation.
