"Biennial Exhibition and Pedestrian Bridge"

Collin Tucker
Chicago, Illinois
Librarium-nominated project
Fall 2016

A vertical expression of the programmatic separation guides the design of this proposal, which, rather than imposing on the site, extends the topography over much of the building. The exhibition spaces are organized at the upper level, above ground, over slender supporting columns. Two open courtyards allow secondary access, give light to the lower/underground program, and lead to the library and cafeteria. The pedestrian bridge arches across the freeway and connects the project to the city.
