Cox Science Plaza Fountain and Garden
The fountain and visually dynamic courtyard in front of the University of Miami's Cox Science Building provides a quiet respite, full of visual delight and a refreshing perspective.
It was added in 2013 as part of a larger, elaborate landscape design, in tune with the architecture of the building that includes carefully crafted stones, lush foliage, and an adjoining circular sculpture garden.
The water spray swirls in the breeze on a summer day near Lake Osceola. The fountain, installed in 1990 and dedicated by the Charles Cobb family, provides essential circulation for the lake. The aqua ecosystem, connected to the canals of Coral Gables and leading to Biscayne Bay, requires aeration to discourage overgrowth of algae. The fountain brings an abundance of wildlife of fauna to the Lake, with large fish and colorful shorebirds frequenting the chiseled limestone perimeter.
Dedicated in 1990 and named for the former UM Chairman of the Board of Trustees, Charles E. Cobb, Jr.
Looking west over Lake Osceola, the iconic Cobb Fountain sets the stage for the Donna Shalala Student Center.
Miami Law School
The cornerstone of the Miami Law School Courtyard is the whimsical, limestone fountain dedicated in 1999 to James H. Booty Nance, JD '56.
The ambiance of the serene study space is set by the cascading water, lush foliage lining the inner terrace of the buildings, and plenty of orange umbrellas for shade.
Robert and Judi Prokop Newman Alumni Center Fountains
The entry courtyard of the Newman Alumni Center welcomes alumni and friends with a linear waterfall, donated by Christian Hasenoehrl, M.S. '95, M.B.A. '95 and the Hasenoehrl Family. The fountain was officially dedicated at the opening of the building in 2012. The basin is limestone, with a black rock base and steel water spout.
