Noguchi Fountain Re-Opens with Ceremony

The Noguchi Fountain at Hart Plaza has been restored with many patterns of water and new lighting. At a ceremoy at around 5:30, the fountain was turned back on. New controls were installed by Johnson Controls.

Now my question is, will the fountain actually work as it was designed originally? Ever since it was built, it has been “broken.” That is, it never functioned as intended.

    I think it is gorgeous. Not so much fun if you’re downwind on a cold windy day though :0)

    I almost drowned trying to take a picture of it during the JazzFest on Sunday – the wind picked up when I was just in the wrong spot!
