The Rainbow Pool was a reflecting pool located on the National Mall in Washington D.C., USA. It was designed by landscape architect Frederick Law Olmsted, Jr., and was situated between the Lincoln Memorial Reflecting Pool (to the west), and 17th Street NW (to the east). The pool was renamed the Rainbow Pool on October 15, 1924 after it was noticed that its 124 nozzles created a "perfect rainbow" when turned on.

  • La Rainbow Pool était un miroir d'eau situé sur le National Mall à Washington D.C. Elle a été conçue par l'architecte paysagiste Frederick Law Olmsted, Jr. , et se trouvait située entre la Lincoln Memorial Reflecting Pool (à l'ouest), et 17th Street NW (à l'est). Le plan d'eau a été rebaptisé "Rainbow pool" le 15 octobre, 1924 après qu'on ait remarqué que ses 124 buses créaient un arc-en-ciel (en anglais "rainbow") lorsqu'elles fonctionnaient. En 2001, elle a été intégrée au National World War II Memorial, un monument commémoratif de la Seconde Guerre mondiale. (fr)
  • The Rainbow Pool was a reflecting pool located on the National Mall in Washington D.C., USA. It was designed by landscape architect Frederick Law Olmsted, Jr., and was situated between the Lincoln Memorial Reflecting Pool (to the west), and 17th Street NW (to the east). The pool was renamed the Rainbow Pool on October 15, 1924 after it was noticed that its 124 nozzles created a "perfect rainbow" when turned on. In 2001 it was integrated into the National World War II Memorial, which features the pool located in roughly the same spot. The builders of the National World War II Memorial asserted that the memorial would not destroy the Rainbow pool; rather it would be sunk lower into the ground to better fit the structure of the World War II Memorial. This was a controversial development, as the Rainbow Pool has a central, visible location between the Washington Monument and Lincoln Memorial. The debate over the WWII Memorial's occupation of the space had to be resolved by legislation from the U.S. Congress in 2001 which allowed the building of the memorial to continue. (en)
