Water - just adds so much to environments....

Visiting Sheffield last week I was really impressed by the long 'wall of water' right outside Sheffield station, with other supporting fountains. It is really impressive. Water always adds so much to environments (internal and external) - I don't really know why we don't use it more in schools. (I don't mean anything as big as the photo above).

Talking to colleagues about it - they all feel the same. Talking to students - they nearly all ask for water in new school environments - often these ideas are removed by staff or features are 'value engineered' out. It really is a pity when this happens.
