Domain Water Fountain 1960s Style
I have been doing some research on it and have found some old articles about Domain Water Fountain and there were several design submissions, the above was what made it in the end. I really like its context as it forms part of the urban highway network expansion in Hobart. the more I look at it the more impressive I find it. It's kind of like "the space-ship has landed / The Jetsons / Retro style all in one!! It's a shame that the water has been turned off for several years now. Turn it back on and let the water flow!
