Tadao Ando, Wrightwood 659 in Chicago

The Japanese architect Tadao Ando has turned an old residential block of brick in Chicago into the Wrightwood 659 exhibition space. Locate in the Lincoln Park neighborhood, the building dates back to the late 1920s. To transform it, the interior was demolished completely and a new structure of steel and reinforced concrete was erected. Crowned with a new terrace offering views of the city, the four levels are connected by a new concrete staircase and a large atrium that rises the entire height of the building. Also added were mechanical elements for temperature control and other technological advances.
