Description

La Escultura Hidráulica
La "Fuente Hidrocinética", "Escultura Hidraúlica" o "Fuente del Rectorado" es una estructura metálica en forma cónica, cuya altura total es de 6,325 metros compuesta por doce elementos en forma de aros que van
aumentando de tamaño, desde un diámetro de 6,5 a 15 metros, sobre la que descansan 576 paletas que al llenarse por el agua bombeada desde el nivel inferior, se vuelcan y derraman, generando un armonioso movimiento de cascada.

Su diseño tiene origen en un concurso, promovido por la Universidad para sus estudiantes en 1974. El requerimiento fue diseñar una escultura cinética con movimiento logrado mediante elementos acuáticos, de modo que las masas de agua quedaran integradas en los efectos escultóricos.

En febrero de 1975, el bachiller Gabriel Martín Landrove ganó el primer premio, con un proyecto en el que la gota de rocío que cae de una hoja a otra fue la fuente de inspiración. Una estructura en constante movimiento, con un efecto de cascada, un sonido de metal al tocarse las paletas y dos movimientos: uno de caída constante cascada permanente y otro de giro, la estructura daba vueltas como un carrusel con la fuerza misma del agua.

Luego de varios años de una ardua y silenciosa labor el miércoles 5 de junio de 1991 a las 5:30 p.m., quedó oficialmente inaugurada.

Hydraulic Sculpture
The "Source Tide," "hydraulic sculpture" or "Source of the Rectory" is a conical shaped metallic structure whose total height is 6.325 meters consists of twelve elements in the form of rings that are
increasing in size from a diameter of 6.5 to 15 meters, on which they rest to 576 pallets filled with water pumped from the lower level will pour and pour, creating a harmonious movement of the cascade.

Its design is rooted in a contest sponsored by the University for its students in 1974. The requirement was to design a kinetic sculpture made by moving water features, so that water bodies are integrated into the sculptural effects.

In February 1975, Bachelor Landrove Gabriel Martin won the first prize with a project in which the drop of dew falling from one sheet to another was the source of inspiration. A structure in constant motion, with a cascade effect, the sound of metal touching the paddles and two movements: one of steady decline permanent waterfall and a twist, the structure was spinning like a carousel with the same force of water.

After several years of arduous and silent work on Wednesday June 5, 1991 at 5:30 pm, was officially opened.
