The “Spritzbrunnen” at the Dreirosenanlage in Basel was created between 2004 and 2006 and designed by the Ernst and Hausherr Landscape Architechts, Zürich. The project was initiated by the Building Department of the Canton of Basel-Stadt. The City Gardening and Civil Engineering Office of the City of Basel was in charge of its realization. The project received the 2006 Recognition Award of the “Living City” Foundation.
