The north and south ramped entries of the atrium leading to the main security checkpoint of the building help create a dynamic, light-filled, multi-height space. This layering of new and old, contrast of light (visually and physically) and heavy, and balance of solid and void is an unexpected and welcome discovery for a passing pedestrian or visitor to a new Chicago public building.

Unfortunately, surface parking holds this uniquely layered building back too great a distance from a streetscape in dire need of scale.

Hey, can we get some of the other City of Chicago projects up on the site? The Center for Green Technology? Some of our police stations, libraries etc. Here's a link for some of the past projects for those interested: http://www.pbcchicago.com/subhtml/green_proj_hist_display.asp
