Fountains in architecture can serve both functional and aesthetic purposes. Functionally, they can provide a source of water for irrigation or as a decorative element in a landscape.
Aesthetically, fountains can be used to add visual interest to a building or space, and can also serve as a focal point in a garden or public square.
Fountains can be made of a variety of materials, such as stone, metal, or glass, and can take many different forms, from simple basins to elaborate sculptures.
Some notable examples of fountains design in architecture include the Trevi Fountain in Rome, the Fountain of Wealth in Singapore, and the Bellagio Fountain in Las Vegas.
