Presbyterian Tower

Presbyterian Tower

In Honor of Nursing, this memorial fountain is situated in the center of the entry courtyard at a hospital in Whittier, California. The classically designed stepped tower is reminiscent of an ancient Ziggurat, yet with a more contemporary and softer approach. The flow path creates interesting water effects and patterns that enable the water to pour down to a round reflective pool and base that follows the architectural layout of the feature. It is crafted of stainless steel, with the entire fountain measuring approximately 9 ft. in diameter and 7 ft. tall.
