Drinking Water Fountains: The Royal Academy
If you, like us here at drinking water fountains, have found yourself out and about in our beautiful country and have marvelled at some of the wonderful and innovative drinking, and non drinking water fountains all over the place, you’re probably wondering why we haven’t written any blogs about them. For this, dear reader, we sincerely apologise, and it is now we begin to rectify this situation. We kick off our new four-part blog with a quick critique of the fountain in the courtyard of the Royal Academy of Art in central London. The fountain itself is in the courtyard of the Royal Academy, which hosts exhibitions all year round, and attracts visitors from all over the world. Designed by Dickson Jones, the fountain has twelve vertical cascading jets, which alternate between each other, and can also be controlled/varied if the trustees of the Academy ever get bored of the sequence (unlikely, we think). Not only this, but the formation of the nozzles, if viewed from above, are set in the pattern of the various astronomical star formations. Spectacular.
If you’ve spotted any particularly fabulous drinking water fountains, or decorative water feature that you’d like us to know about, please do get in touch and let us know!
