The Revson Fountain Waterworks at Lincoln Center

Whenever you tinker with something whose primary purpose in this world is to delight, you are bound to irritate some folks. (Check out the links and read the various comments at Curbed.)

Now that the scaffolding is beginning to be removed, like the bandages wielded by the husband of Muffy Potter Aston, we see what has been built for us as a replacement for the fountain designed by Philip Johnson for the center of the plaza in Lincoln Center.

I am so very satisfied with this photo that I am posting this now, but I've more to say about Diller Scofidio Renfrew, the architects of the renovation of Lincoln Center, and WET the people behind the fountain.
