Today, I wrote a brief online survey about fountains and memory (see link below). I asked three open ended questions: “What is your favorite fountain?”, “What special memories do you have related to fountains?” and “In your opinion what is the most well known fountain in your city (or country)?”. I had a long list of other questions I wanted to ask, but I decided to keep it brief and use this survey to test the water (so to speak) and see what kinds of responses people submitted.
Broadly speaking, I am interested in investigating why people identify with certain fountains more than others and also how water features, as gigantic urban engines, influences the activity and development around them in cities. More soon…
Please take the survey. It will take maybe 5 minutes.
