The "watering hole" is a meeting place for all sorts of animal species, and this Zaha Hadid London water fountain would be sure to attract people for reasons beyond its liquid abundance. The renowned architectural studio presents its proposal for a water feature in England's capital, set for placement on the South Bank.

Referencing the water cycle, the designer chose the intriguing and symbolic form of the lemniscate. The figure-eight has, however, been filled in and folded over to function as a canopy for the urban well. Zaha Hadid's London water fountain will become a landmark, a place to sit and spot to refresh. Its aesthetic is a contemporary twist on 17th century Ottoman Empire design, complete with Turkish tiles.
