London Parks Fountain Competition.

The design for the prototype fountain takes its cue from nature, notably from the fennel plant with its Fermat’s spiral. The long stems of the plant erupting into the flower at the tip, inspired the dynamic form. Each fountain stem is topped with a different shaped bowl, suited to different functions, – one for adults and one for children,one for filling bottles, and even one for dogs. A solar panel topping an extra tall stem, provides power for running the fountain. The bowls are positioned at relevant heights, spiraling around simulating the seed heads on plants.
