MAS Context has collaborated with the Chicago Architecture Center on their exhibition Helmut Jahn: Life + Architecture. As part of the exhibition, a series of personal reflections by those close to him initially commissioned by MAS Context are included in the exhibition. Those are complemented by new recollections commissioned for the exhibition.
Honoring the late Chicago architect who died earlier in 2021, Helmut Jahn: Life + Architecture presents important designs by Helmut Jahn, ranging from signature early projects like the crystalline Michigan City Public Library (1977) and Chicago’s dazzlingly provocative James R. Thompson Center (1985) to the transformational urban marketplace Sony Center in Berlin (2000) and the forward-looking Pritzker Military Archives Center, currently under construction in Somers, Wisconsin.
Helmut Jahn: Life + Architecture has been curated by Zurich Esposito and the Chicago Architecture Center exhibition team and designed by Jeannine Colaço and Studio J9.
