As I watch San Francisco’s Market Street coming alive at dawn, amid it all I stumble onto a beautiful fountain. This street is a gem, with its green pockets in between the highrise, they are carefully inserted mini-microcosms.
The fountain has multiple glass rings surrounded by large rocks and sits on a paved piazza with a matching floor pattern. Rock and glass shape the water and the three together build a beautiful urban sculpture.
Water is pushed up to the top where a thin brass plate ads a sparkle. There it bubbles softly before pressing moving patterns into the glass as it slides off back into the ground.
