Renowned Japanese architect Tadao Ando has designed an art space in Chicago, dubbed the Wrightwood 659, set to open on October 12. The new venue is a former apartment complex located in a 1920s building in Chicago’s Lincoln Park neighborhood. Ando’s signature design elements of concrete forms and natural light unite with the heritage building’s brick façades.
Wrightwood 659’s inaugural exhibition, Ando and Le Corbusier: Masters of Architecture, will include over 100 drawings, photographs and models by Le Corbusier, as well as 106 small models of Le Corbusier’s works made by Ando’s students.
Take a look inside the Tadao Ando-designed Wrightwood 659, which will open on October 12 with the Ando and Le Corbusier show on display until December 15.
