The Bunker Hill Steps linking Hope Street to Fifth Street is Los Angeles' architectural translation of Rome's Spanish Steps and, indeed, are often referred to as the "Spanish Steps." Designed by Lawrence Halprin, Threading a peaceful path through Downtown's urban towers, a fountain stream spills down the center of this monumental staircase designed by Lawrence Halprin. Its quiet beauty is reminiscent of Rome's Spanish Steps (albeit more narrow). The stream originates at the top of the stairs where Robert Graham's nude female sculpture Source Figure stands atop a cylindrical base. The figure's hands are open, as if to offer water to the city.

Too bad they ripped out the water feature for some lame modern atrocity, should have left it alonge
