First the Dripping Arch, Then the Green Building

First the Dripping Arch, Then the Green Building

As a freshman at MIT, I noticed the problem of the dripping arch - MIT's Old Faithful, if you will. While I find it strange that the arch seems to drip almost constantly, I thought for a moment and realized that it's the only fountain we have here at MIT.

My proposal: Turn the dripping to good use. Make the arch into a real fountain. It will show that MIT ingenuity we take pride in (and be a bit more scenic than, say, the sculptures we have here). Now if we can get a wind sock installed underneath the Green Building
