The Historic Purpose of Fountains


Fountains harmonize water and are designed to fulfill both practical and aesthetic purposes. In the past, public fountains served places to meet while fetching water for drinking or washing, but there were also landmark fountains designed to impress as they refreshed. Then, as now, fountains embody symbolic, artistic and social ideas as they enliven places and reinvigorate people. As an structures of stone, metal or concrete, the success of a fountain design is ultimately determined by its aesthetic mastery of water and it's interplay with light and the surrounding environment. While water is a common substance, understanding its unique qualities and how best to use them and fountains require sustained observation of nature, knowledge of technical hydraulics and artistic sensibilities. Many water fountain sounds attest to the ingenious ability of designers to transform a dry, solid monument into a vibrantly wet and changeable work of art. The existence of fountains as amenities for peoples use in pleasure, however, depends upon the expert irrigation of rising and falling water, design elements and hydraulic technology.

There is nothing like the appeal of running water in a garden landscape, to quiet the city din, enable us find relief and relaxation in the urban environment.
