    CHICAGO LANDMARK AWARDS

    Chicago is justly proud of its architectural heritage, marked by the great American architects Louis Sullivan and Frank Lloyd Wright, by Ludwig Mies van der Rohe and, more recently, Skidmore, Owings & Merrill and Helmut Jahn. As contemporary architects follow in these illustrious footsteps, modern Chicagoans work hard to preserve their built history. — Published 2006.1108

    CHICAGO AIA AWARDS

    From a single family house in Chicago's DePaul neighborhood to a massive train station built within a European airport, a new collection of projects has once again demonstrated that "great architects and great architecture remain an enormous part of Chicago's identity." So said Thomas Kerwin, AIA, then-president of the city's chapter of the American Institute of Architects, when he recently announced the organization's design award recipients. — Published 2006.0118

    POSTCARD FROM CHICAGO

    Dear ArchitectureWeek,

    On January 6th, 2006, Pilgrim Baptist Church suffered extensive fire damage to its architecturally significant interior. From news photographs it appears that only the shell remains. Although best known for its association with gospel music of the early 20th century, the 1891 building held an important place in architectural history. It was designed by Dankmar Adler and Louis Sullivan as the Kehilath Anshe Ma'ariv Synagogue during a period in which Frank Lloyd Wright worked for their firm. — Published 2006.0111

    "There is no doubt that the significant depth of architectural talent in Chicago is a tangible asset to our city." So commented Charles Smith, AIA, president of the Chicago chapter of the American Institute of Architects, as he congratulated the winners of that organization's 2004 design awards. Indeed, Chicago is one American city where architectural talent has proved to be a tangible asset for over 120 years. — Published 2005.0112

    GREEN SCHOOL GATHERS FOR TAKEOFF

    When architects speak of "green" buildings these days, they seldom mean it literally. But for the elementary/ middle school in Lake Zurich, Illinois, Legat Architects, Inc. have justified both environmental and chromatic interpretations of the word. They designed the new school for sustainability and gave it a distinctive copper entrance that the students have dubbed "the green spaceship." Says their principal: "They keep waiting for it to blast off!" — Published 2004.0526

    TOTALLY TUBULAR KOOLHAAS

    As a commuter train roars into a college campus in Chicago, its noise is suddenly muffled when it enters a stainless steel tunnel that sits atop the new student center. The tube and the building below it are the work of Dutch architect Rem Koolhaas and his firm, the Office for Metropolitan Architecture (OMA). The school is the Illinois Institute of Technology (IIT), still bearing the stamp of its mid-20th century modernist origins. — Published 2003.1119

    MIDWEST FARM STYLE

    What better to welcome visitors to a working 1890s farmstead than an exhibit hall suggesting traditional forms. With an economy reminiscent of 19th-century Illinois farm life, the Chicago firm of Teng & Associates, Inc. has designed a barn-like structure for Kline Creek Farm . The new visitors center has an outward appearance appropriate for the historic farm context, but on closer inspection it reveals modern construction techniques and sensibilities. — Published 2002.0227

    OFFICE INFILL TREADS LIGHTLY

    The BP Amoco Research Center posed several challenges to its architects. The client wanted the 40-building campus to have a new corporate identity expressed in a high-profile marker at its entrance. Three existing buildings needed to be connected through a central circulation space. And to keep costs down, the addition needed to impose minimum disruption on the existing structure. — Published 2001.1024

    PHARMACIA BEING GREEN

    "It's not easy being green," is the conclusion of Flad & Associates, when they're designing for a high-tech pharmaceutical research and development company. Yet their new building for Pharmacia has demonstrated that it's possible to be "green" while still providing an attractive, safe, and professionally supportive environment for scientists. — Published 2001.0509
