Hammer Projects: Greg Lynn

Monday, May 17th, 2010

May 21 – September 26, 2010
This summer, the Hammer Museum will present a new sculptural work by Los Angeles-based architect Greg Lynn. A fantastical attraction for visitors of all ages, Fountain of Toys will be sited in the Museum’s outdoor courtyard. As the title suggests, the work is a functioning fountain made entirely out of large plastic found children’s toys that have been cut and reassembled in multiple layers, with water spouting from its top and pooling at its base.

Greg Lynn’s Fountain of Toys is the first in a new series of projects focused on architecture and design guest-curated by architectural historian Sylvia Lavin. Taking place approximately once a year over the next three years, these projects will focus on the presentation of new works by architects and designers and will be sited in different locations around the Museum.

WPA 2.0: Working Public Architecture began as an open design competition seeking innovative, implementable proposals that place infrastructure at the heart of rebuilding our cities during this next era of metropolitan recovery. The competition, organized by UCLA’s cityLAB, was inspired by the Depression-era Works Projects Administration and the 2009 American Recovery and Reinvestment Act.
