Laminar Fountain

Featured Video Play Icon

In the midst of holiday travels, take a moment (particularly if you’re flying through Detroit) to enjoy the simple beauty of WET Design’s fountain in the McNamara Terminal. Laminar jets arc through the air almost like perfect crystalline columns of fluid. Watch closely and you’ll see a few wavy variations–like a Plateau-Rayleigh instability creeping in–but there will be no turbulence to distress passengers and passers-by. (Video credit: WET Design)
