This fountain incorporates elements of nature into a design that is distinctly architectural in character. The inference is that the greenery, flowing water, and pools that are an integral part of nature should be retained as a significant feature of our architecture. There is an interplay of textures, and forms in concrete that makes this an ordered archtectural composition in contrast to nature. My subsequent architectural work seeks to retain this symbiotic relationship between humans and nature resulting in an environment of serenity and beauty.
