During drought years you'll have to imagine how they look with water flowing, but even without, they're a sight to behold. Celebrated sculptor and former WWII internee Ruth Asawa designed these fountains to be lived in, not observed from polite distance. Bronze origami dandelions sprout from polished-pebble pools, with built-in benches for bento-box picnics, never mind the breeze along this wind-tunnel pedestrian block.
