Crown Fountain, a vision of artist Jaume Plensa executed in collaboration with Krueck + Sexton Architects, has become an iconic landmark at the Chicago lakefront. Thousands of visitors, as well as many Chicagoans, visit the fountain every year to see the projected faces on the glass structures, play in the water, and enjoy the spray on a hot day from the water gargoyle emanating from the fountain images.
