IIT Architecture Adjunct Associate Professor Richard Blender won an AIA Chicago Small Project Citation of Merit for Articulated Pods, “the gut-renovation of a 3,600 square foot residence located on the top floor and penthouse of an existing 5-unit building. The three-story masonry structure occupies the southeast corner of its block in the Wicker Park neighborhood of Chicago. The building footprint runs lot-line to lot-line and its long edge faces south, providing an expansive southern exposure. The unit was designed for the owners of the building who live there with their two young daughters.”
