Tinguely Brunnen

One of the most well-known works of Jean Tinguely is this fountain, which he called 'Composition of the Six Elements'. The avant-garde artist and husband of the sculptress Niki de Saint Phalle became famous through his machine sculptures. These consist not only of pieces of plastic and scrap welded and screwed together, but they also move and make noise. In the fountain project, Tinguely gained one more element, namely water.

Museum Tinguely

The museum building was opened by Mario Botta in 1996 and is sponsored by the local chemical company, Hoffman La Roche. Even the garden of the tower houses works of Tinguely in the shape of a fountain. A bigger version can be found on the Theaterplatz.
