Watering Holes

At first glance this looks like a Barbara Hepworth sculpture, but it is actually a new drinking fountain in Green Park entitled Watering Holes. Pun aside, the holes at different heights allow adults, children, wheelchair users and dogs to avail themselves of fresh drinking water. An 800kg slab of Cornish granite was used to create the fountain, designed by Robin Monotti Architects and Mark Titman. Watering Holes was one of two winners in an international design competition organised by the Royal Parks Foundation, Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA) and The Royal Parks, with generous financial support from The Tiffany & Co Foundation in New York.
