Lotus Fountain

Berlin, September 2011

“A pool in the second courtyard contains the Lotus Fountain, by the Parisian artists Bernard and Francois Baschet, a ‘water play’ with optical and acoustical elements. It was originally commissioned for the staircase of Berlin's New National Gallery and was installed there in 1975. It was deemed expendable in 1981 and was transferred to the Europa-Center in 1982 for free as an extended loan.”
