Art Institute of Chicago
264,000 sq. ft., 3-Stories
Renzo Piano Building Workshop
Virtual Design & Construction
As a landmark building on the Art Institute's museum campus, the 264,000 sq. ft. Modern Wing provides space for the museum’s collection of 20th and 21st century art. The building is a light glass, steel and limestone wall structure constructed to fit into the 19th century identity of the existing historic buildings and is composed of two, three-story pavilions, one on each side of the two-story Griffin Court, a dramatic, skylit passageway that serves as the entrance to the Modern Wing.
The lower-level houses storage and various handling areas to support the museum functions, new service entries, a new loading dock, as well as campus-required mechanical, electrical and plumbing infrastructure improvements. Within the building is The Bluhm Family Terrace, 3,400 sq. ft. of outdoor space overlooking the Griffin Court, and the Terzo Piano a 160-seat fine dining restaurant and other food areas. Turner also constructed the Nichols Bridgeway, a 625-foot pedestrian bridge that rises over the Lurie Gardens and crosses Monroe Street arching to a height of 60 feet, with views of the park, skyline, and lake. Along with building components, gardens and other landscaping elements surrounding the Modern Wing add over 20,000 sq. ft. of green space to the museum campus.
