Sculpting Water

Mark Fuller has designed the new fountains for both CityCenter in Las Vegas and the new fountain for Lincoln Center in New York. Fast Company takes a look at the forces behind the flash.

The article includes a link to a video showing how lighting creates stunning effects in Fuller's CityCenter fountain.

Alissa Walker writes, "When New York's Lincoln Center opened in 1964, the columns of water bubbling from its center were the most technically-advanced water features known to man, controlled by "computer-programmed tapes" and able to propel a six-foot wide wall of water into the air. Fifty years later, the fountain began to falter, yet "liquid architecture" had since evolved beyond our wildest (wettest?) dreams, mostly thanks to one Mark Fuller, and his company WET."
