Description

Audaciously cantilevered out over a new stretch of riverwalk, 150 North Riverside commands attention as few recent buildings have. The glassy office tower’s 54 floors, carefully engineered to stand tall above busy rail lines, offer spectacular views down all three branches of the Chicago River. The soaring lobby, whose enormous glass wall transparently connects indoors and out, is defined by 150 Media Stream, a one-of-a-kind achievement in art, architecture and technology. The piece’s 89 LED blades, stretching 150 feet long and rising 22 feet high, display ever-changing collaborative artworks developed by local and international established and emerging artists, art educators, and students.

Digital installation showcasing Chicago artists

For this year's OHC, the building's lobby video installation, 150 Media Stream, will feature twelve of its most innovative artworks since its inception in 2017. This massive installation is the only one of its kind, dedicated to showcasing Chicago artists.
