Water Feature

The cascading water and rocks may be a metaphor for the cyclical nature of City economics or simply a perfect oasis of tranquillity in an otherwise busy corner of Broadgate. Either way, this Japanese inspired water feature is a feast for the eyes and a delight for the ears. It remains a favourite spot for many people and, although the water is off limits for a paddle, we hope you will join others in this popular piazza for a spot of rest and relaxation.

Skidmore, Owings & Merrill (SOM) is the award winning architectural practice whose Chicago office designed much of Broadgate. Here they worked alongside Cox to create Water Feature. Cox studied at the Central School of Art and Design in London. Commissions include pieces for the Foreign and Commonwealth Office in London and the British High Commission in Delhi.
