I love the idea of that tired old fountain is being replaced with such beautiful designs. Love the Big Arch and Globe but any design would enhance the old floating tire that is now there! I walk along the river quite often and will look forward on seeing a refreshing and ever-present fountain! Pam L

when my parents used to bring me to the park as a kid, i loved seeing the peace fountain. there was something about it that seemed magical, especially at night. years — and countless visits — later, i no longer find myself caring to look at the fountain anymore. i think it was the sameness that eroded whatever magic the park and the fountain had, until it became another piece of the city that your eyes could slide right past without acknowledgement. looking at this design concept, i feel that magic being recaptured. next to concepts that seem too much or not enough, the arch stands out with a compelling simplicity that captures the old and the new — our history and our progress. i am no designer, but i can say that imagining myself at that park and in front of that arch, i feel that childhood magic will return and stay with it.
