Walkable Water Dome at Catalunya Square. Getafe

At Catalunya square in Getafe is emplaced this original walkable fountain.

It is a dome of parabolic jets of 4 meters high, arranged at ground level, pouring into the circular fountain from a distance of 5 meters. In the dome there are four entries from which walkers can visit the inside of fountain and walk through the dry space as donut, between the beginning of the jet and its fall, and back out through another door from the fountain, without getting wet.

The fountain is activated by a foot switch and adjusts the height of the jets interactively as wind speed and also by the number of times the foot switch is activated.

The dome architecture generates a very colorful and fun water, enlivening the space with the sound of water and children playing in and out of the cage of water.
