The Tel Aviv Municipality began work to dismantle the iconic Fire and Water Fountain in the city's Dizengoff Square Sunday, ahead of the square's planned flattening.

The fountain, designed by artist Yaacov Agam, was dedicated in 1986 and restored in 2012. When in operation, the fountain would regularly spin while shooting jets of water upward, and music would play in the square.

In 2017, Dizengoff Square is slated to change from a bridge over a busy road, as it has been since 1978, to a large traffic circle, as it was previously, and the fountain will be put back in the middle. The bridge's demolition is scheduled for January 3, 2017.
