The Archibald Fountain
This fountain in Sydney’s Hyde Park commemorates the alliance between France and Australia during the First World War. The sculptures, which are all taken from Greek mythology, represent harmony and self-sacrifice.
This steel globe was created for the 1964 World’s Fair in New York. Weighing 350 tonnes and surrounded by a series of single water-jet fountains, the Unisphere offers visitors a chance to cool off on hot summer days. There are plans afoot to create an entire water park with the fountain as its centrepiece.
The Warsaw Fountain
Of all the fountains in the Jardin du Trocadéro in Paris, the highlight is the Warsaw Fountain with its 20 water cannons shooting water roughly 50 metres. Together with 56 smaller fountains and a dozen water columns, it also augments a spectacular view of the Eiffel Tower.
