More of a sculpture than a fountain really, this “Skyscraper”  is placed on a low pedestal with water cascading over this base. Every architect wants to design a skyscraper. This is E. Fay Jones’ skyscraper. Great proportions, interesting design, I almost wish it was a real skyscraper in New York… or anywhere actually. It is not too hard to find on the University of Arkansas campus, and actually found it well worth the little side trip I took to check it out.
