Flexhouse in Chicago, Illinois by Interface Studio Architects + Sullivan Goulette & Wilson

Wednesday, April 16th, 2014

Article source: Interface Studio Architects + Sullivan Goulette & Wilson

This 8-unit townhouse development occupies a well located site in the emerging Logan Square neighborhood northwest of downtown Chicago, just two blocks from a major train station. The open floor plans and flexibility of the interiors reflect a sense of simplicity and respond to the needs of contemporary living. The exterior strategy uses fiber cement lap siding and large metal window projections in a composition that retains a sense of a coherent urban block while marking each home as unique.

Gable Again House in Champaign, Illinois by Jeffery S. Poss, Architect

Saturday, February 15th, 2014

Article source: Jeffery S. Poss, Architect

A well-proportioned 1957 gabled house was constructed on the north edge of a small park.  While the southern view of maturing park trees visible through the glazed gable end is delightful, an owner of dubious taste in the 1970s constructed a curiously awful Mansard carbuncle-of-an-addition to its west.

Meditation Hut II “Le Cadeau” in Urbana, Illinois by Jeffery S. Poss, Architect

Saturday, February 1st, 2014

Article source: Jeffery S. Poss, Architect

The hut is located in back corner of a residential garden, nestled in a mature landscape.   For the designer-owner-builder, the experience of its creation was a retreat both from work and into work – the hands-on construction process in itself was cathartic.

County World War I & II Veterans Memorial in Peoria, Illinois by Jeffery S. Poss Architect

Thursday, January 23rd, 2014

Article source: Jeffery S. Poss Architect

From the historical perspective of six decades, we can begin to understand the essential relationship between the two world wars. It is therefore fitting that Peoria County has envisioned a single project that commemorates both wars.  The Memorial features three similar white granite columns in two groups to represent the roman numerals “I” and “II.”  The columns are supported on black granite plinths.The plinths act as “cenotaphs”, or empty tombs, inscribed with the names of the county veterans who lost their lives in the wars.The memorial honors the 28,000 men and women from Peoria County who served during World War I & II.

United Continental Headquarters in Chicago, Illinois by Ricardo Bofill Taller de Arquitectura

Thursday, November 7th, 2013

Article source: Ricardo Bofill Taller de Arquitectura

The project for this 50-storey office block sought to favour the possibility of a panoramic view over the city, so that there is an evident predominance of glass on the façade while nevertheless avoiding the formulaic glass tower of arbitrary forms. The existence of the American tradition of skyscraper construction, with some especially attractive examples inChicago, suggested the need to reestablish a dialogue between the classicism of stone and the high-tech of glass.
