Columbia Savings Fountain

Located at the Southeast corner of Wilshire and La Brea in Los Angeles sits this incredbile sculpture. It was a dripping waterfall with scattered, colored panes of glass adding to its appeal. The glass is gone and the water dried up when the bank became a church, but now there's the threat of demolition as the entire block is slated to become a large, mid-rise residential structure.

 

Designed by the artist Taki in 1965.
