While viewing this video I saw something that looks like DePaul's new Theatre School building at Fullerton and Racine. Not sure if this is the latest Pelli design though.

Griffin Theater

Another ordinance authorizes the negotiated sale of the former 20th District Police Station in the City’s Edgewater community for one dollar to turn it into a performing arts theatre.

The Griffin Theater Company will rehabilitate the 6,150 square foot building at 1940 West Foster Avenue and build an addition to create a new performing arts center in the 40th Ward.

Harbor expansion tied to Olympics is still on
31ST ST. | Scaled-down project on track without Games

7, 2010

BY LISA DONOVAN AND FRAN SPIELMAN Staff Reporters
Mayor Daley's fleeting dream of bringing the Olympics to Chicago may be water over the dam, but a plan to expand the lakefront's harbor system -- once tied to the bid for the 2016 Games -- is moving forward, albeit a bit of a scaled-down version.

Within weeks, construction will begin on a $102 million harbor at 31st Street Beach, which will include 1,000 new boat slips, as well as a single-story building housing a 235-space covered parking garage -- adjacent to a 100-space open-air parking lot -- public washrooms as well as showers and lockers for boaters, retail space and a "community room," Chicago Park District planners say.

In addition, a peninsula will be built adjacent to a pier at 31st Street -- adding an acre of parkland with views of the downtown skyline.

The harbor, with construction cost to be paid with revenue bonds, is expected to be open by spring 2012.

But plans for a restaurant and community center there have been put on hold for financial reasons, said Bob Rejman, director of lakefront construction for the Park District............

They've been renovating the Monroe Building for quite some time now. You can kind of see the green Spanish tile they're using on the roof to restore the building to its original look.

More interesting is the fact that the Pritzker Military Library is moving from Streeterville to this building and expanding, taking the 2nd-4th floors. The move will hopefully bring attention to this relatively unknown organization (they produce a TV program from their studio) and add another cultural destination to Michigan Avenue.

Wow. That's just...whack. (In a good way.) Now, if we could just get DePaul to build things like this...

Depaul isnt in the same league,
but I would argue its doing very well for itself,
much more than i ever expected from them.
Looking back to how the campus was in the seventies
and eighties they have come a long long way.
Especially when they are done with their present construction.

NU unveils new music school plans
Wednesday, September 29, 2010, at 4:42 pm by Bill Smith


Northwestern University gave Evanston city staff a look this afternoon at plans for the new Bienen Music School building on the lakefront.

The plans call for a five-story, 155,000-square-foot building with three public performance spaces sheathed in limestone and glass-clad classroom and office areas.



Definitely a combination of the new Astellas HQ + Block Museum

Fall Update: University projects take shape on campus and worldwide

Planning has proceeded for the Institute for Molecular Engineering to be housed within a new physical sciences building, following broad faculty input and approval of the Institute by the Council of the University Senate in February. The joint University–Argonne search committee for the Institute’s founding director, supported by a generous naming gift from the Pritzker family, began its work over the spring and summer, and plans to bring leading candidates to campus fall quarter for interviews by faculty leaders.

HOK and Jamie Carpenter have been selected as the architects for the new science building, which will be built on the site of the Research Institutes building and will house the Institute for Molecular Engineering and portions of the Physical Sciences Division. Schematic designs will be completed this fall, and the Research Institutes building will be vacated beginning in early 2011 in preparation for the new construction.

North Grant Park Renovation Plans

When: Wednesday, November 17, 2010 - 6:30 p.m.
Where: Columbia College Chicago, Stage Two Center
618 S Michigan Avenue, 2nd Floor

Columbia College Chicago has graciously agreed to host us! Come out and review the concept plans for the North Grant Park Renovation Project. The landscape architecture firm, MVVA, will present plans and gather input. We have worked with them and the Chicago Park District on what are very exciting plans. A large-scale model and images will be presented. This plan was created after the Chicago Park District and GPC/GPAC organized a large public input meeting attended by over 200 people as well as input taken via the internet and several other public meetings.

We need your input to further refine the plans. They include many very interesting and innovative concepts with all-season design and activities as well as other creative outdoor spaces connecting Millennium Park to the Lake. The plans are very green.
Thank you for your participation!

175 W Washington

National Museum of Health + Medicine - Chicago satellite location
Smith + Gill

They are currently trying to raise $5 million with an additional $40 million needed to complete the museum by 2014. You can find more information about what the museum will include here.

AS+GG envisions a new kind of museum that is itself a living organism: both metaphorically in
keeping with the museum’s theme + content, and literally, as the high performance building
will actually generate its own sustainable energy. As visitors engage with interactive exhibits
throughout the museum, they will be able to individually generate energy that will power the
building--mirroring the activities of nutrients within the human body.

These developing energy technologies--such as a heel-strike system which harvests force
produced by foot traffic-- will be visually represented on both interior surfaces and the building
envelope, showing visitors the “real-time” display of their energy generation. When the museum is
lightly populated it will exude a quiet energy; at peak times it will visibly flicker and pulse from the
physical presence of its occupants.

The building’s facade will also incorporate a new high-tech “wrapper” that projects imagery
relating to the museum and its programming. This dynamic exterior will intrigue visitors and
engage in an architectural dialogue with the Pritzker Pavilion bandshell to the east on Washington Street.

The foundation of NMH+MC’s green agenda is the adaptive re-use of the original building, a key
principle of sustainable construction. The Washington Street façade, which will be visible through
the translucent wrapper, will be refreshed by replacing missing portions and extending around to
the east side, which is not currently exposed to public view.
