16. Water Gardens 300 reduced

Fort Worth Water Gardens, 1974, Philip Johnson & John Burgee, 1502 Commerce St., Downtown. This 4-block urban park was designed by Philip Johnson and John Burgee in 1974 to be an oasis in the middle of downtown. The gnarly roots of the 35-year old cypress trees bordering the "Quiet Pool" have begun to bubble up at the base of the trees.
