Description

Ross Barney Architects moved into this century-old warehouse formerly owned by world renowned Chicago architect Harry Weese in 2002. It features a 2-story, sky-lit atrium and an angled staircase connecting the floors. Ross Barney revised the space to be more conducive to collaboration by taking down partitions, including the ones that enclosed Weese's private office, and installing reconfigurable workstations. Visitors entering the reception area are greeted with 3D models, building fragments, and a collection of exhibits that showcase many of the studio’s projects.

Visitor Experience

Take a walk through Harry Weese's former offices, now the studio where Ross Barney Architects designed the Chicago Riverwalk, McDonald's Chicago Flagship, and more.
