CENTRIFUGAL FOUNTAIN

Choregraphy of water jets

VIGNETTE-PDF 2


The fountain in the Parc des Salles in Istres is at the hub of the paths that run through the park. It was designed as a central element to be seen from all parts of the park. A massive, bubbling water jet of four metres in height ensures that the fountain is visible from a distance. The fountain’s water choreography is controlled by a program that involves  two networks of straight jets and the central jet. The ensemble of jets is installed in the middle of a ring of water.
