Nathan Phillips Square Disappearing Fountain


City of Toronto


Toronto, Ontario



At the main access podium to the modernist icon that is Toronto’s City Hall, there are a series of hidden water fountains which are electronically controlled to rise up every hour to a desired level. 


BETA built up the mechanical and electrical infrastructure from the second level underground. Each fountain water feature and respective safety protection mechanism was individually tailormade, and the entire system was fully installed and commissioned by BETA as a one-entity turnkey operation.
