^Yeah, for some reason they never released any renderings. However, if you search through Ronan's website you can find some images of what is likely the Poetry Foundation building.

Geez. It looks like they're building a particular accelerator, not a library. This will be one the finest pieces of architecture in Chicago.

What the hell are those column things? They're all the same height, so they can't be structural columns.

They're pretty massive and bulky for lighting, too. Wouldn't you want the lights to be arrayed around the perimeter pointing up, and then reflected down to illuminate the room?

ugh, i hate it, if only because it'd be really annoying to have no access to what looks like a seperate building except through the main library via a basement connection. it probably would've been better go with a design that makes it look like an actual library annex, not a standalone.

There is a covered, ground-level connection between the Regenstein and the new Mansueto annex. Not sure what you are referring to..

Sorry, the diagrams I looked at for some reason made me think that the connection was made from one level down in the Reg to the Mansueto annex.

Master planning continues at UIC
By Micah Maidenberg


...In other UIC news, the U. of I. trustees were expected to vote March 10 on awarding a $3.7 million contract to the Barton Marlow Company for renovation of Douglas Hall, in the heart of the school’s eastern campus.

New Hellenic museum to rise in Greektown


An artist's rendering shows the planned facility for the National Hellenic Museum in Greektown. The new museum is expected to open in the fall of 2011.

The Greektown community, still reeling from a fire last month that destroyed a number of longtime businesses, is encouraged by construction activity on the site where a new National Hellenic Museum will rise and serve as a gateway to the area.

Plans for the museum have been under way for nearly a decade, but the last of 24 caissons for the three-story 40,000 square-foot structure on the northeast corner of Halsted and Van Buren streets only went in last week. The foundation is expected to be poured next month and the facility should open in fall 2011....

Jahn's entry for Northwestern's new music school building. Remember, Goettsch Partners won the competition but their design has not been released.

I'm excited, that must mean Goettsch Partners plan is even better than that ridiculously awesome concept.........Or not.

FRACK me! OK, the colored lighting is a bit gimmicky and, contextually, the entire building may be incongruous with northwestern, but dang if i can't say that that ain't pretty. Definitely looking forward to the Goettsch Partners design.

Poetry Foundation - Dearborn & Superior
Ronan's website states that the groundbreaking ceremony will be held on April 21 but I can't find any confirmation of that elsewhere


Also note that even though it's only two floors, it's about the same height as the buildings it replaced.

...And this year the University will select a design firm to expand the Harris School of Public Policy.

Still to come, and to be completed before 2020, is a residential commons for the Booth School of Business, along with more residential space and possibly a hotel.
---

Good news about the Harris School expansion. I thought we were going to be stuck with DeStefano's ugly design. IIRC, SSA is also supposed to expand into a new building with an underground connection to the Mies.

(Conceptual rendering)

The new Booth dorm is supposed to replace an old building at 60th and Woodlawn (not sure if the footprint includes the Mott Building next door).

A dorm for the Booth school? Correct me if I'm wrong, but this is new, right? I always figured Booth students were generally commuters.

In my experience, full-time students at Booth tend to live off campus in Hyde Park. Most full-timers come to Chicago from somewhere else specifically to attend the school, so few would know enough about the city to be inclined to commute. The part-timers who attend the program downtown are another story, of course.
