Fountain at La Défense opens

Fountain at La Défense opens

Yaacov Agam designs a colorful musical fountain that sits in the center of the La Défense business district in metropolitan Paris. The fountain has 66 vertical water jets and five multiple “tulip” jets, that are programmed to respond to music. A rainbow mosaic tiled pool measures 160-by-75 feet and spills over the 90 colors used in the polymorphic design waterfall.

This video is embellished with a music track – but it demonstrates the fountain in action as well as some interesting behind-the-scenes views.
