picture may be worth a thousand words, however, the
photo above still does not exemplify the beauty and
detail incorporated into the Glenbrook Mall Fountain.
In an attempt to entertain and provide a relaxing
atmosphere for ongoing customers, Landau & Heyman,
Inc. elected to construct this exquisite fountain
within the J.C. Penney Court.
The entire fountain is supported by concrete retaining walls, which required an intricate forming system to accommodate the radial design. The photo to left reflects some of the forming system used. On the outside, the fountain is decorated with Italian glass tile and terrazzo. To provide the exhilarating water display, a specialized contractor out of Atlanta, Georgia completed the mechanics of the fountain system. Each fountainhead had to be calibrated and precisely located to provide the rainbow effects as shown in the top photo.
