Normally located up against a wall, Asher includes a lip on one edge of the basin even though his drinking fountain is free standing. Asher's work pulls in the already existing elements of the site, bringing symmetry to a previously asymmetric layout. UC San Diego Library, UC San Diego, La Jolla, CA 92093-0175 (https://library.ucsd.edu/dc/contact) Located on the grassy median in Mathews Quad, Asher's fountain is juxtaposed with a large American flag and a granite landmark commemorating the former Camp Matthews, a military training facility from 1917 to 1964, which occupied the land on which the University of California, San Diego now stands.
