Tinguely Fountain

Tinguely Fountain, Basel Overview

Created by Jean Tinguely, this is one fountain that no one would have ever seen before. It is also another popular landmark of Basel.

Jean Tiguely was a Swiss artist. Back in 1977, he created a unqiue fountain. Laying the base with asphalt, he created a lot of strange looking machines that would spew out water. All of these machines/figures are made using iron. The fountain was built in place of the stage of an old theatre company, so the figures or machines were made to behave like actors or dancers, going in perfect co-ordination with each other.æ
