chicago mixed-use


Fall 2014
Chicago, ILL
Critic: Inaki Abalos

This is a project of movement. The movement of air, and people.  The building’s orientation and form not only utilizes the prevailing winds to produce a thermally comfortable climate, it also breaks the monotonous grid of Chicago providing oblique connections to the city.  Through this disruption of the grid, there exists a heightened awareness of one’s movement throughout the building in relation to the surrounding context. The building peals open at the intersection of micro and macro program to create unique perspectives of the city.
