The Buckingham Fountain, located in the center of Grant Park, is a landmark to the people of Chicago. When the Chicago Park District (CPD) and the Art Institute of Chicago decided the fountain and surrounding pavement needed extensive renovations, stormwater detention became important aspects of the design. Designer, Thompson Dyke & Associates, used 235,000 SqFt. of Eco-Priora™ permeable pavers with Series® finish to fit the requirements.

The coral color of the exposed aggregate finish successfully replicates the crushed stone that has been used since the fountain was constructed. The CPD’s main goals were ADA accessibility, durability, the ability to take up and reinstall the hardscape without patching, and maintaining the historical character. The communities of Chicago and travelers from afar now have the perfect urban outdoor space to relax, catch up with friends and family, and enjoy the view of one of the greatest historic sites in the world.

 Red Eco-Priora Permeable pavers in a geometric pattern of varying shapes and sizes lead to a Rococo wedding cake style fountain.
