somewhat awesome stuff

Hey everyone, I'm back. We've been busy with life and all that, but I thought I'd get going again with a bit of somewhat awesome stuff. This time, we're looking at Halprin's Ira Keller Fountain in Portland, OR. These fountains show the potential for design to heal a city, and really bring people together. Halprin famously concluded his speech at the opening by walking into the fountain in his suit and tie, I guess so people would get the idea that it was for playing, not just looking pretty. Enjoy.
