The University of Chicago and French development officials tapped star architect Jeanne Gang to design a new student center for the school in Paris.
Chicago-based Studio Gang will join SEMAPA, a publicly-owned French development company, and private developer Icade to build the new center in time for a 2022 opening, according to Crain’s. It will be about two blocks from the existing facility used to host University of Chicago students.
The current facility, which was built in 2003, will be demolished once the new one is completed. It hosts about 250 undergraduate students and 12 graduate students. Already the university’s largest study abroad program, the center will become a “hub for research and scholarly collaborations in Europe, the Middle East and Africa,” according to a press release.
Late last year, the University of Chicago opened a $75 million new business school facility in Hong Kong.Recommend0 recommendationsPublished in
