Williams Water Wall

This horseshoe-shaped urban waterfall, designed by award-winning architect Phillip Johnson, pumps 78,500 gallons of water every three hours. The Water Wall is 64 feet tall, representing the adjacent 64-story Williams (formerly Transco) Tower. The surrounding park was added as an amenity to the fountain and has been a popular tourist spot since its inception.

Fun Fact: Architect Phillip Johnson won the prestigious Pritzker Prize for designing the Water Wall.
