Day 57: Lurie Boardwalk

This is the boardwalk featured in the Lurie Garden located in Millenium Park. The boardwalk floats over stepped pools leaving a 5″ wide surface along the Seem Wall.  It is built of sturdy Ipe wood and  was designed as a strolling path through the garden. A 24″ wide step runs along the length of the boardwalk which becomes a casual seat to let people sit on the edge of the water way and dangle their feet in the water as they relax in the garden.

In the Evening the water way is brightly lit by in-ground fixtures.  The shoulder hedge acts as the solid container to the magical night scene and transforms the garden into a subtly glowing “container” of light.
