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.
