Green Line Arts Center
The Green Line Arts Center (GLAC) is part of an urban network of buildings and creative practices that make up the fabric of the Washington Park neighborhood in the South Side area of Chicago. Developed in collaboration with Theaster Gates, the GLAC will include spaces for performing arts programs for dance, theater, film, and spoken word. The building’s pronounced roofline distinguishes it from the elevated train and distant horizon. From the sidewalk, the large storefront windows offer views of the inner life of the building. The programmatic adjacencies implicit to the plan organization encourage connectivity, adaptability, and visibility. The architecture engages its urban surroundings through the attributes of scale, materiality, and transparency.
