Johnston Marklee Designs Concept for new Green Line Arts Center in Chicago

Johnston Marklee

Johnston Marklee is designing the concept for the new Green Line Arts Center in the historic Washington Park neighborhood on the South Side of Chicago. The new facility is the next major phase of expansion of the Arts Block, a neighborhood cultural development project led by artist/faculty member Theaster Gates and his team at the University of Chicago Arts + Public Life (APL).

The Center will provide new performance, workshop, and exhibition spaces where important works of art are made and vital skills are shared to help all artists excel.

Sharon Johnston and Mark Lee
Response by Dean Amale Andraos

Since its founding in 1998, Johnston Marklee\'s diverse portfolio has been unified by a singular conceptual approach to each project where the relationship between design and building technology are explored to create unique works of architecture. Principals Sharon Johnston and Mark Lee’s approach to projects, varying in scale from master plans to buildings and temporary installations, distills the inherent complexity of each project into coherent solutions. Johnston Marklee has a substantial architectural portfolio including residential, commercial, institutional, and exhibition environments with a particular focus on the arts.

Free and open to the public.

Grid is a Grid is a Grid is Grid is a Grid


Johnston Marklee has designed an installation for the cafe space in the Museum of Contemporary Art Chicago, which coincides with the inaugural Chicago Architecture Biennial. The intervention applies 2 x 2 perspectival square graphic on the cafe walls and a gridded ceiling structure which reduces the double height space of the cafe by half. The new overhead volume alludes to the JML design proposal for the building, in which a mezzanine is introduced to gain additional spaces for education and gathering above and social engagement below. The installation opens at the MCA Chicago on October 3, 2015 and will be up until January 3, 2016.
