ABSTRACT
The article discusses restoration of a reflecting pool designed by Minoru Yamasaki and built in 1958 at Wayne State University, Detroit, MI. Initially planned as a repair project, the restoration turned unexpectedly into a full replacement of concrete slab and wall system when extensive deterioration was found. The author presents details of the restoration, materials and techniques used, and preservation of some original futures. A reopening ceremony of the reflecting pool took place on May 1, 2013.
