The Mayor’s Fund wants a maker to build an ‘innovative’ piece of furniture for City Hall Courtyard

City Hall Courtyard. January 4, 2017 Category: PurposeShort
Before Philadelphia had a beautiful City Hall, it had a beautiful water pump.

Those were the good ol’ days of the 1800s, when the “Centre Square Water Works” supplied Philadelphians with clean drinking water and also served as a community meeting place.

The Mayor’s Fund wants to recall City Hall’s beginnings by contracting a maker to construct a new “innovative, modular, multi-purpose” piece of outdoor furniture to sit in the courtyard for two years, starting in June.

“The feature will be designed for outdoor use to support current and new programs and activities, last for a minimum of two years, and call attention to the historic relationship the site of City Hall has to water in Philadelphia,” reads the Fund’s website.

The application deadline is 5 p.m on Friday, Jan. 13. First, check out the Water Department’s Watersheds Blog for some background on Centre Square Water Works.
