Facts

  • A twin tower named Two Fountain Place was planned across the street during the 1980s real estate boom. It would have been offset 90° from this tower.
  • Architect Henry Cobb of I.M. Pei & Partners summarized his design for this building as "geometry pursued with rigor". Based on the diagonal of a double square, it is a subtractive form, "what's left after carving into a square prism.".
  • The elevators go to the 62nd floor, a stairway leads up to a 63rd floor for mechanical equipment and storage.
  • The architects were recognized with an Honor Award from the American Institute of Architects in 1990.
  • The plaza has 172 bubbler fountains, 225 Texas cypress trees, waterfalls, and a central court fountain with 360 computer-driven jets.
  • Half of the building site is set aside as a two-acre downtown water garden and fountain plaza, a wet and very shady destination for pedestrians in a city of automobiles.
  • Fountain Place is located at the end of the northwest branch of the downtown tunnel system, and connects directly to the Fairmont Hotel to the east.
  • Fountain Place is the world's tallest building to be glazed with four-sided structural silicone.
