Chicago, Illinois

The University of Chicago North Science Quad features long, axial views with seating areas for students and staff, beautifully placed garden beds and green space, while creating gateways with the surrounding architecture.

Umbriano® pavers were chosen for durability purpose in high traffic areas and its natural granite appearance. The unique mottled surface of the Summer Wheat color is accented with a rich Midnight Sky color that reflects beautifully with the historic quad buildings.
