A multi-coloured light fountain 10m high sitting in a temporary site on the roof of a brutally urban three storey building in North London

A delicate framework of standard scaffold tubes, some curved, is laced together with clamps and restrained with cables to create the form of the fountain structure. These sit on a base of rolled steel sections which form a platform from which the whole assembly can be craned into position with a similar lifting frame above.
