This important exhibit for the Chicago Architecture Center (CAC), formerly the Chicago Architecture Foundation (CAF), was hosted in the atrium of architect Daniel H. Burnham’s 1904 Santa Fe Building, which is both a National and Chicago Landmark. The exhibit incorporated models and graphic materials for fifteen innovative federal building projects, commissioned through the U.S. General Services Administration’s Design Excellence Program. Its design reinterprets the atrium’s Doric pilasters with a freestanding colonnade of laser-cut, folded aluminum.
