Site & Program: Nagle Hartray served as a consultant to Wolff Landscape Architecture for the renovation of Eero Saarinen’s spray fountain and deep pool on The University of Chicago campus.
Design: Designed in the late 1950's and considered a modern classic, the original pool sat empty most of the school year due to the long winter season.
The renovation provided for a zero-depth pool which preserves the shape and flow of the original design while enhancing reflections and increasing reliability in Chicago's weather conditions. The pool is a plane of 3 x 3 black granite pavers flush with the surrounding plaza paving.
