In collaboration with the design-build team that includes Archer-Western-de Moya Group construction and HDR engineers, The Fountain's design is inspired by Miami's world status as the center of the America's. Its design is representative through the depiction of the curved travel paths to and from the central city of Miami.
The Fountain was named to signify Miami's connection to the water that began several thousand years ago with the Tequesta Indians and continues to this day with the millions of visitors that make Miami their warm weather destinations. The Fountain Bridge also provides vast spaces below the bridge, creating a public gather space.
The overall vision of this bridge is to emphasize the essence of Miami as the center for the Arts, with this structure as its nexus, making it a focal point of civic life for all Miamians.
