England - London - Young boy leaps across water fountains at Heathrow Airport
Seen from an aerial view far above the ground level, is a young boy who leaps across a fountain water feature landscape outside Heathrow Airport's Terminal 5 building
created by the Richard Rogers Partnership (now Rogers Stirk Harbour and Partners). The highlight of a high sun glints off the wet pavement as 55 Choreoswitch waterswitches made by Ocmis are linked to 11 pumps located in a purpose built basement plant room beneath the Plaza. The switches are linked to a unit that also controls the 110 colour changing LED lights integrated into the nozzle housings. Displays can be fast and energetic with dramatic colours or subdued and gentle. From writer Alain de Botton's book project "A Week at the Airport: A Heathrow Diary" (2009).
