Royal Parks - Drinking Water Fountains

One of the winning designs
An International competition was launched earlier this year by the Mayor of London, Boris Johnson, to design 'The Ultimate Drinking Fountain' for London's eight Royal Parks.

Two architects from the UK won the competition. The sculptures that double as water drinking fountains for both humans and dogs were chosen from over 150 entries from 26 different countries. The winning designs were judged on aesthetics, robustness for life in a public park, ease of maintenance and installation, sustainability and environmental impact and affordability.

Articles have been written by The Evening Standard, The Guardian and there has also been a piece on the Horticulture Week Website.
