  • Fountains make a colorful, controversial splash : Dubai Fountain
    Seoul was installed last year to commemorate Yi s 23 victories with just 12 vessels during the Joseon Dynasty 1392 1910 But Kim said the fountain crowded citizens out of the plaza while adding nothing to its historical value Design critic Choi Bum had a different complaint that the new fountains are simply not Korean enough There are two ways of enjoy water one is Western and the other is Asian In that sense a fountain is a very Western way to enjoy water Koreans used to think water should flow from top to bottom Otherwise it was believed to go against nature Choi said I m not saying that all these fountains are bad but it would be better for cities to consider what makes a Korean fountain Still these controversies haven t stopped the water from flowing and the best way to decide where you stand on the issue is to visit the fountains yourself SAC World Music Fountain Among Seoul s many musical fountains the SAC World Music Fountain located at the Seoul Arts Center in Seocho dong southern Seoul is the oldest built in 2002 But that doesn t mean it s outdated With about 825 nozzles the fountain is programmable presenting water in the shape of orchids cranes or even ballet dances In its repertoire is everything from works by Vivaldi and Elgar to pop songs including What a Wonderful World to Dream a Little Dream Cho Jong gu an official in charge of maintaining the fountain said About 15 songs are played at each performance meaning you could listen to nearly 500 songs per year Because the venue is mainly used for opera ballet and orchestral concerts hundreds throughout the year most of the fountain songs are classical pieces But that doesn t mean there s no room for a lighter seasonal touch On special days like Children s Day which falls on May 5 we add many children s songs Cho added The best time to watch the fountain is after the sun goes down when floodlights highlight the streams of water against the sapphire sky For the best view get an outdoor table at Mozart the cafe next door Children s Grand Park fountains Children s Grand Park Korea s oldest theme park has an older tunnel fountain and a musical fountain completed last year The tunnel fountain offers exactly what you d think a chance for children and the young at heart to run through and get a good soaking on a hot summer day The park s musical fountain is much more pop friendly than the one at the Seoul Arts Center We play K pop children s songs as well as classical music For example the theme song from local children s cartoon Pororo the Little Penguin is one of the favorites for many young visitors said Kim Byung sam a worker at the park After enjoying the fountains take a look around the park itself which during a

  • Burj Dubai is Finished, But at What Environmental Value? : Dubai Fountain
    planned botanical gardens and series of man made lakes were designed to be as environmentally sustainable as possible when one takes into account that Dubai is located in a part of the world that has very scanty rainfall and some of the hottest summers on the planet It was constructed to withstand the extreme temperature ranges of this Persian Gulf city state where external temperatures during the summer can average more than 50 degrees C 122 degrees F Another possibly favorable ecological by product of the massive edifice is the large amount of water produced by condensation and so far collected from the air conditioning systems used to keep the entire structure pleasantly cool estimated at around 15 000 liters and will be used to provide water for the garden complex that will eventually surround the tower The question many may have however is what fuel sources are being used to provide the electricity that powers the AC system as well as all the lighting and elevators needed therein Mohamed Alabbar Chairman of Emaar Properties the development company behind this project was quoted recently as saying Burj Khalifa is the Arab World s tribute to the art and science of modern engineering and design Burj Khalifa symbolizes the aesthetic union of many cultures from Arabia and the rest of the world For years now Dubai has been trying to show the world that this little UAE sheikhdom of less than 4 million people including guest workers has the world s most impressive city from an architectural standpoint Judging from past projects in this showcase Persian Gulf city state such as the ultra luxurious Atlantis Hotel Complex the largest indoor ski slope in the world and a series of off shore island projects including Palm Island and The World whose ultra
