This unique metal in construction competition challenges the entrant to design a new Maritime Museum and Historical Center of Chicago. The facility will serve Chicago-area residents and visitors of all ages by providing interactive displays and programs, classrooms, a research library, and a restaurant. This facility will be a visitor center to Chicago’s beautiful lake shore park system and an education and research center. It will highlight the remarkable maritime history of Chicago and Lake Michigan and the adventure of seafaring on the Great Lakes.
The project must utilize metal as a prominent, creative, and structural element in the design. It should underscore the flexibility, efficiency, and beauty of metal in responding to the unique requirements of this facility and the sustainable qualities of metal.
