Nelson Algren Fountain cover architecture competition, Chicago

We have made it to the Finalists round for the Nelson Algren Fountain cover competition in Chicago’s Wicker Park neighborhood.  Taking as our cue Algren’s championing of the common people of the city, our preliminary solution surrounded the existing fountain with an internally lit mosaic of photographs of random people of the neighborhood.  We will be reworking this scheme and coming up with more thoughts and details over the next few weeks for the final submittal in early November.
