The fifty six meters long water feature extends along the Adventure’s Park roundabout in a sinuous line of pulverization water, with 1,20 meter height, and illuminate with three different colors: green, blue and red. The pulverization’s line sinuous shape is an allusion to Falagueira’s river, which in the past flowed in this same place and now runs inside of a tube, under the fountain. To save the pulverized water, a wet zone was created along the pulverization sinuous line, six meters width, draining to a reservoir which reintroduces it into the system. As decoration and demarcation of the area, the use of pebble was adopted in three different tonalities. This turned possible the creation of a dynamic pavement draw, representing the delicate undulation of water flowing in a slipway. The pebble, which texture and color qualities intensify when it is wet, was also chosen, because of its association with rivers. When the night falls, with illumination in three different colors, each one corresponding to a third part of the pulverization line, the ornamental character of the fountain is empathized by the water, light and color, reinforcing the sinuosity and the organic character of the intervention. | Photos by Silvestre Zamith
