The Venetian Pool
This used to be a rock quarry in the early 1900s and you can find it in Coral Gables which is a residential area in Miami. It was an inspiration of Phineas Paist who was the architect and Denman Fink who was the artistic designer.
The inspiration of these two gentlemen was to bring to Miami a Venetian type lagoon. When it was finally finished in 1924, the public was finally allowed to see the Venetian Pool. It is now still open to the public and has been enhanced by Venetian style architecture surrounding the pool and the Mediterranean design of the Coral Gables residential community.
