Fontaine Stravinsky, Paris

(140+ reviews on the web)
Fountain Tourist Spot
A whimsical public fountain ornamented with 16 works of sculpture, plus moving and spraying water representing the works of composer Igor Stravinsky, Fontaine Stravinsky was created in 1983 by sculptors Jean Tinguely and Niki de Saint Phalle. The fountain is a shallow basin of 580 sq m (6,243 sq ft) above the Institut de Recherche et Coordination Acoustique/Musique, an organization devoted to promoting modern music and musicology. Because of the offices and rooms below, the fountain was designed to be as lightweight as possible, with very shallow water, a bottom of stainless steel, and sculptures composed of plastic and other light materials.

  • I came here with my boyfriend while we stayed in Paris together. This was definitely more of a personal stop for me, as I found a photograph my father had taken of this fountain when he visited Paris ...  more »
  • If you visit the Pompidou Centre you will not miss it. Its in a very crowdy area and should be preserved. It was out of water and very dirty, so there was no impact watching it!!  more »
  • Whimsical modern art in the middle of a fountain in a very busy part of town. Lots of cafes surround. You'll pass by here as you wander among museums and monuments.  more »
