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.
