water fountain

Water Fountain, Zürich "Old City" . . . Nothing articulates collective space better than a
small open plain with the ritualized spring of a modest fountain. A refuge from city noise, which,
whether one is just passing by or stopping to linger a while, always refreshes.

Because architects and urban designers no longer walk the land as they did in the distant
past, a feeling for this rhythm of complementarity of dense activity and open space
has by and large been lost. So now everywhere we are given structures without small-
scale, intimate, living centers.
