As Chicagoans, we sometimes take our architecture for granted, particularly places that are considered to be tourist attractions. A lot of Chicagoans avoid places like Navy Pier and even parts of the Magnificent Mile, well, because it's just not as exciting when you've been around all of it for so long. However, for this particular tourist (who also happens to be a teacher), the water fountain in Water Tower Place was just incredibly mind blowing. Ok, so he's more impressed with the physics of the water flow and the design of the fountain than the sheer volume of water bursting out of it. Either way, it certainly does remind one that even the things we'd brush off as just another touristy spot is actually pretty fascinating at the end of the day.
