When water and beautiful art vessels to drink from come together, we get super excited! So you can imagine my reaction when I stumbled upon the designs for water fountains of some of the most famous British architecture studios including Zaha Hadid Architects, Hopkins Architects and Studio Weave. The six studios, which also included Eric Parry Architects, ADAM Architecture and Allford Hall Monaghan Morris (AHMM), were asked to design water dispensing structures for sites in Kensington, Soho and on the South Bank. Each fountain incorporates contemporary Turkish ceramics, referencing the Ottoman-inspired marble kiosks that could be found across Turkey during the seventeenth century. All six designs wereshown at the Building Centre in London from in March. The project was organised by the Architects’ Journalin partnership with Turkishceramics. Now that is real big Bib News!
