Christian Moeller has created a new perimeter enhancement for the Dominion Virginia Energy Substation in Rosslyn as part of Monday Properties’ 1812 N Moore Street project. Moeller’s design spans the Nash Street façade with additional treatments visible on N. Moore Street. The design was inspired by the successful return of the bald eagle to nesting along the banks of the Potomac River after years of being threatened with extinction. It is rendered in a pattern created by the arrangement of nearly 20,000 3 ¼” reflective discs arranged in a field of slotted aluminum panels. By day, the abstracted image appears to the viewer in motion in changing shades of pearlescent green. At night, glows with light charged during the daytime, enhanced by the reflected light of passing cars and ambient traffic lights. The public art project was negotiated as a community benefit for 1812 N Moore Street, a 35 story office building in Rosslyn.
