Where is the best place to put a water fountain? When choosing the location of the fountain and arranging the environment around the fountain, we must first consider the theme and form of the fountain, and coordinate with the environment. The fountain and the environment should be considered unified, and the environment should be rendered and contrasted to achieve a decorative environment or with the help of the fountain. The purpose of artistic association to create artistic conception.
In general, the location of the water fountain is mostly located at the focal point or end of the axis of the building and square. It is also possible to make some small scenes of the musical fountain according to the environmental characteristics to freely decorate the indoor and outdoor spaces. Music fountains should be placed in a sheltered environment to maintain the water type.
There are natural and integral forms of water fountains. The location of the water spray can be located in the center of the pool and form a pattern, or it can be sideways or freely arranged; in addition, the form, scale and size ratio of the water spray should be determined according to the spatial scale of the music fountain.
The height of the spray water and the diameter of the water fountain are related to the venue around the music water fountain. According to the physiological characteristics of the human visual field, for musical fountains, sculptures, flower beds and other sceneries, the vertical viewing angle is 30°, and the horizontal viewing angle is 45°. So how to determine the "appropriate viewing distance" for the musical fountain? It is roughly estimated that the suitable viewing distance for a large musical fountain is about 3.3 times the spray height, and the suitable viewing distance for a small musical fountain is about 3 times the spray height; the suitable viewing distance for the horizontal viewing area is about 1.2 times the width of the scene. . Of course, you can also shorten the viewing distance to create the effect of looking up, to enhance the towering feeling of the water spray. So the location of the water fountain is very important.
