Studio Gang clads Chicago student housing complex in wavy strips of concrete



US firm Studio Gang has completed a student residential complex for the University of Chicago that features towers sheathed in glass and sculptural white concrete panels.

Scheduled to open on 17 September, the complex ? called the Campus North Residential Commons ? is the latest addition to the university's campus, which features works by prominent architects such as Frank Lloyd Wright, Eero Saarinen, Mies van der Rohe, Rafael Vińoly and Helmut Jahn.

Encompassing 400,000 square feet (37,160 square metres), the complex is located on the northeast corner of the campus and is meant to serve as a "front door" for the private university. It was built to help the institution achieve its goal of housing students closer to campus.
The complex contains apartments for 800 undergraduate students, along with dining facilities, classrooms, community rooms, offices and courtyards. At street level, it features shops and a public plaza that are intended to benefit residents in the surrounding neighbourhood.
