The Crown Fountain - Chicago

More from a trip that seems ages ago now...

In downtown Chicago's Millennium Park is the Crown Fountain designed by Spanish artist Jaume Plensa, completed in July 2004. The fountain consists of two 50 foot glass block towers at each end of a reflecting pool that is about an inch deep. Each tower projects faces of various people and expressions. The kids of Chicago love to play in the fountain and seem to have mastered the timing for all of the fancy water effects.
