"School for Sculpture"

Housing two educators, their art studio, and classrooms, School for Sculpture, at Lake Shore Park in Chicago, blends art with park. Blade wall structural frames define the building’s and outdoor sculpture gallery’s spaces and functions. Translucent panels move to diffuse direct sunlight and views in while ever-changing the façade’s profile, but when shading or privacy is nonessential, panels can be arranged for one’s own architectural expression.
