Suspended in midair, it appears as if the waterfall is magically floating in the air, which makes for some pretty incredible display and photos. Water is pumped through pipes that are attached to tower frame, but the pouring water hides the support tower when viewed from the palace’s steps. "This waterfall reinvigorates the engineering ingenuity of the past," said Eliasson. "It is as constructed as the court was, and I've left the construction open for all to see—a seemingly foreign element that expands the scope of human imagination."
