George’s Postcard Note: As an architect and a resident of San Francisco in the 60’s, I loved visiting this fountain. I had two reasons: 1) to celebrate the removal of this end of the old elevated freeway (which I had used to get to my house on Telegraph Hill) and 2) to see how his design interpretated the “freeway’s” tangled concrete structural forms. This afternoon kids were playing on, in, and through the fountain, just as Halperin had intended. The fountain’s scale there, the light bouncing off the water, and the concrete gave it a very happy feeling – as in celebration of reconnecting human spaces to the waterfront.
