Traditionally a fountain is an arrangement where water comes from a source, fills a basin of some sort, and is then drained away. In a fountain sheets of water might flow over various surfaces of stone, concrete or maybe metal. Basins might overflow from one into another, or perhaps the overflow may mimic a natural cascade. Countless fountains can be found in small, artificial, ornamental ponds, basins and formal garden pools, and often they include a sculpture.

All of the fountains above are designed by well known architects and I must say it’s not an easy job to design and complete these pieces of art. On the difference between the ideals of “architecture” and mere “construction” , the renowned 20th C. architect Le Corbusier wrote: “You employ stone, wood, and concrete, and with these materials you build houses and palaces: that is construction. Ingenuity is at work. But suddenly you touch my heart, you do me good. I am happy and I say: This is beautiful. That is Architecture” .
