Chicago Millennium Park


A fountain in Chicago’s Millennium Park features two giant LED-lit towers faced with LED displays.The fountain consists of two 50-foot-high glass-block towers facing each other across a shallow 232-foot-long reflecting pool.On three sides, the towers glow from within thanks to color-changing LED lighting fixtures – approximately 70 units per tower – supplied by Color Kinetics, while the fourth sides feature Barco LED display screens that face each other across the reflecting pool.


The screens feature the expressive faces of almost 1,000 Chicagoans, changing at short intervals and spouting water from giant mouths.
