Burren & Keen

Burren & Keen was the architecture and town planning firm involved in the closing of Cuba Street to create a pedestrian mall in 1969. 'The Bucket Fountain', generally attributed to Graham Allardice, was intended to be a temporary feature of the newly created mall. But somehow the fountain has stayed, and is now a much loved, and permanent fixture, of Cuba Mall.
