Open Schools: Overton and Parkman

In response to the unprecedented closing of over fifty Chicago Public Schools in 2013, advanced students at the IIT College of Architecture investigated a number of adaptive reuse opportunities of these vacant schools in Fall 2020 to attract resources and attention for the revitalization and rejuvenation of the buildings and their surrounding neighborhoods.

This exhibition is done in a partnership with Borderless Studio and Ghian Foreman.
