6 reviews of The Stravinsky Fountain

Very peculiar

The Stravinsky Fountain is located in the heart of Paris, right by the Centre Georges Pompidou, in a square with the same name.

The fountain consists of a rectangular pond with 16 sculptures by Jean Tinguely and her partner (also a sculptor). The sculptures are unusual because they move and many include some form of water (jets, fountains, etc.). The sculptures, which have been painted black, are made of aluminum and many have small electric motors.

The fountain, inaugurated by Jacques Chirac and his wife in 1983, was built in honor of the Russian composer who created some of the most famous ballets in history For this reason, color, movement, and aesthetics of space are the predominate themes of the fountain.
