George L. Duncan Fountains

Designer: Alison Duncan - PLLC (2012)

The George L. Duncan fountain is composed of 3 custom-designed weathering steel Stacks which represent Lowell’s iconic smokestacks constructed during its industrial era.  Each of the Stacks is designed with slight modifications to allow water to either pour, spill or cascade.  This fountain structure is intended to celebrate the many ways in which water moves throughout and around the city’s hydraulic systems such as canals, spillways, and waterfalls.

Location: Between Enterprise Bank and Shattuck Street
