Below we see a fountain that is completely access-free, located next to Taipei 101. Fountains remain one of the few public resources with moving parts (sort of) that we can freely approach, touch, and play inside. Many entertainments are moving toward virtual reality, toward enjoying physical excitement while we are at our home. Escaping to the country shouldn't be the only option to 'connect' with whatever tangible environment.

Not many people are brave enough to run into the fountain (me neither), probably because there is no pond to throw a coin in nor a playground for children. It is a lonesome fountain, reinforced by the monotone surroundings. I wonder what it looked liked in the architect's sketch.
