Japanese architect Tadao Ando produces a stunning and socially engaging architectural exhibit center in Chicago's Lincoln Park neighborhood. The interior of the space is kept dynamic and well-lit, while the materials boast a noteworthy and respectable aesthetic.

The plot boasts 35,565 square feet of space that is intended to house engaging design and architectural exhibits. For the interior, Tadao Ando utilized intricate brickwork, as well as some potent concrete elements. The two distinct materials contrast in a noticeable manner, while the windows provide a welcoming influx of light. The high ceiling of the building is also a definite benefit for the curation of art exhibitions and relevant sculptural installations.

The first architectural exhibit will be dedicated to Ando and Le Corbusier. It will explore the relationship between Swiss-French modernism and Japanese contemporary.
