Making water dance: the art of fountain design
One of the simplest ways to instil a sense of joy in to an otherwise boring space is to install a fountain.

You would have to go back to ancient Rome to discover when we began using water as a decorative element in our gardens and public squares. By the 15th and 16th centuries the Italian Renaissance fountaineers seemed to have mastered the art, but our first guest this week has reinvented the fountain for the modern age.
