Penn Tower Building Atrium Fountain


The atrium of this 13-story office tower is U-shaped with tropical plants, seating and fountains in the court at the corners provided by the U-shape. The two identical fountains in the atrium consists of a circular basin lined with tile that rests on a conical brick base. The fountain jets are set within a smaller circular receptacle within the basin and consists of a spray ring with jets designed to produce an inside fall, meeting in the center to form a column.
