The city of Chicago invited eight design firms to compete for the design of a new Chicago Visitor’s Center located in the loop. The City wanted a destination for visitors to be informed of cultural things to do in the city. The building was to be a recognizable symbol in the city, a welcome beacon to all visitors. Our solution was a translucent wall inserted into the existing space. This simple wall does not only define space but dispenses all of the information and becomes the visitor center’s identity simultaneously.
