The Dispersion of Water Fountain Design Technology

Dispersion Water Fountain Design Technology 220019689983.jpg The Dispersion of Water Fountain Design Technology Dissiminating practical hydraulic information and water feature design ideas all through Europe was accomplished with the written papers and illustrated books of the time. An un-named French water feature designer was an internationally famed hydraulic pioneer in the late 1500's. With Royal commissions in Brussels, London and Germany, he began his career in Italy, developing know-how in garden design and grottoes with incorporated and imaginative water features. In France, towards the closure of his life, he published “The Principle of Moving Forces”, a book which turned into the essential text on hydraulic technology and engineering. Modernizing key hydraulic advancements of classical antiquity, the publication also details contemporary hydraulic technologies. Archimedes, the inventor of the water screw, had his work showcased and these integrated a mechanical way to move water. Sunlight heating up water in a pair of vessels hidden in a room next to an decorative fountain was displayed in one illustration. The end result: the water feature is stimulated by the hot water expanding and rising up the pipes. Garden ponds as well as pumps, water wheels, and water feature designs are included in the publication.

Contemporary Garden Decor: Large Outdoor Water Fountains and their Roots

Contemporary Garden Decor: Large Outdoor Water Fountains Roots 46761509070.jpg Contemporary Garden Decor: Large Outdoor Water Fountains and their Roots A fountain, an amazing piece of engineering, not only supplies drinking water as it pours into a basin, it can also propel water high into the air for an extraordinary effect.

The central purpose of a fountain was originally strictly practical. People in cities, towns and villages received their drinking water, as well as water to bathe and wash, via aqueducts or springs in the area. Until the late 19th, century most water fountains operated using gravity to allow water to flow or jet into the air, therefore, they needed a supply of water such as a reservoir or aqueduct located higher than the fountain. Serving as an element of decoration and celebration, fountains also provided clean, fresh drinking water. Animals or heroes made of bronze or stone masks were often times utilized by Romans to decorate their fountains. During the Middle Ages, Muslim and Moorish garden planners included fountains to create mini depictions of the gardens of paradise. Fountains played a significant role in the Gardens of Versailles, all part of French King Louis XIV’s desire to exert his power over nature. To mark the entrance of the restored Roman aqueducts, the Popes of the 17th and 18th centuries commissioned the building of baroque style fountains in the spot where the aqueducts arrived in the city of Rome

The end of the nineteenth century saw the rise in usage of indoor plumbing to provide drinking water, so urban fountains were relegated to strictly decorative elements. The creation of special water effects and the recycling of water were two things made possible by replacing gravity with mechanical pumps.

Decorating city parks, honoring people or events and entertaining, are some of the functions of modern-day fountains.

Agrippa’s Splendid Water-lifting Machine

Agrippa’s Splendid Water-lifting Machine 55239386384840910552.jpg Agrippa’s Splendid Water-lifting Machine The admiration Agrippa’s water-lifting creation earned by Andrea Bacci in 1588 was short-lived. Just years afterward, in 1592, the early modern Roman conduit, the Acqua Felice, was hooked up to the Medici’s villa, perhaps making the device outdated. Its usage may have been brief but Camillo Agrippa’s invention had a large place in history as the most remarkable water-lifting hardware of its type in Italy prior to the contemporary era. Although there were other important water-driven creations either projected or built during the latter part of the sixteenth century, such as scenographic water demonstrations, giochi d’acqua or water caprices, and musical water fountains, none were fed by water like Agrippa’s system.
