Lots of architectural fountains aren’t meant to be interactive but end up being treated that way.  Such was the case with the fountain in front of Boston’s First Church of Christ, Scientist, to which local children flocked for relief from summer’s heat despite the fact that the watershape was purely decorative.  For lots of reasons, the church called in CWDG to revise the facility, which now features barrier-free, foot-friendly surfaces and dancing jets that make the site safer and even more fun.
