Lincoln Center iconic Revson fountain, a beloved destination for countless New Yorkers and visitors from around the world, and star of numerous movies including Ghostbusters, Moonstruck, and The Producers, returns to the public on Thursday, October 1st with a sleek new redesign by the highly-praised architects of Alice Tully Hall and the Highline, Diller, Scofido + Renfro, and spectacular water choreography from leading design firm WET, acclaimed for their work on the Columbus Circle, Burj Dubai, and Bellagio fountains.
 
Diller, Scofido + Renfro has given the Revson Fountain the appearance of a floating granite ring, opening views across the Josie Robertson Plaza (Columbus Ave. btw. 62nd & 65th Sts.) in all directions including the Metropolitan Opera House, Avery Fisher Hall (home of the New York Philharmonic and Lincoln Center’s own programming), and the David H. Koch Theater (home of New York City Ballet and New York City Opera). The pool of water is lowered and converted to a shallow water surface at Plaza level. New technologies provide automated windspray sensors that adjust water pressure, height, and volume. Special nozzles and lighting systems allow for a multitude of special-effect water and light configurations. In terms of choreography, the fountain can create a wide range of water expressions from slow morphing geometric masses to fast paced chases. At night, the fountain is vibrantly illuminated with white light.
