Fountain zen

This is likely the last day before we endure winter’s wrath. Snow’s-a-coming. I took this as an excuse to wear short sleeves. And walk home from work.

Maybe it was the fresh air or the whimsical soundtrack in my headphones, but I couldn’t help but notice how gorgeous the fountain in Exelon Plaza is at night.

    I had understood that the fountain in the Exelon Plaza, with its nine square sets of jets, was “copying” the construction of the Willis Tower (nee: Sears Tower). Which makes sense, except Willis was constructed in 1974, the Chase Tower (formerly the First National Bank of Chicago Tower) was from 1969, and the best I can find is that the plaza was completed in 1972. Any thoughts on that?

    Thanks!
