Jaume Plensa Designed Fountain Under Construction

Probably my favorite addition to the park besides the Gehry Bandshell and Bridge, is this new double fountain with two towers each 50 feet high that will display images and video. This fountain designed by Spanish artist Jaume Plensa and funded by a donation from Crown Family, will really be the future of what modern fountains will try to emulate. Kruek & Sexton Archictects' site has really good pictures of what the fountain will do, and of a completed working image, really interesting to see it working this summer.
