Drinking Fountain Competition
Drinking fountains have a vital role to play in helping visitors to parks and other public spaces quench their thirst quickly, cheaply and in an environmentally friendly way.
However, there is a shortage of drinking fountains in parks across the UK. In 2010, to improve the provision of fresh, healthy, energy-efficient drinking water in The Royal Parks and other public spaces, we began working with the Tiffany & Co Foundation, The Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA) and The Royal Parks to launch a competition to find a design of a new, top-quality, low-cost, model drinking fountain.
Trumpet Drinking Fountain
Located in Kensington Gardens, the Trumpet drinking fountain is one of the winning designs of this competition.
Watering Holes Drinking Fountain
Located in Green Park, the Watering Holes drinking fountain is one of the winning designs of this competition.
