Commerce Tower Sunken Garden Fountain


A small portion of the outdoors was transplanted in this urban space. This adjunct to the thirty-two story Commerce Tower is a sunken garden 50' x 72'. It features a modernistic fountain sculpture of a lotus blossom. Vertical jets of water are propelled through the center and break against the outer leaves.
