Garden Fountain Engineers Through History

Garden Fountain Engineers Through History Often working as architects, sculptors, artists, engineers and highly educated scholars all in one, from the 16th to the later part of the 18th century, fountain designers were multi-talented individuals, During the Renaissance, Leonardo da Vinci illustrated the creator as an creative genius, inventor and scientific expert. With his astounding fascination about the forces of nature, he examined the attributes and movement of water and systematically documented his findings in his now celebrated notebooks. Brilliant water displays full with symbolic meaning and natural charm transformed private villa settings when early Italian fountain designers combined creativity with hydraulic and gardening expertise.

We refer to this concept as Archimedes’ principle, which deals with the forces of buoyancy. Usually, hydrostatic pressure on a point of liquid is a product of the hydrostatic force exerted on it. A city’s water supply system, fountains, and artesian wells are all good examples of the application of these principles on containers.
