NEW PROJECTS is an urbanism studio, research center, and exhibition space in Chicago - a new center for instigating, nurturing, and realizing advanced thinking in architecture, urban design and aesthetic culture. The storefront office is located in the former home of the Overton Hygienic Company, an African American cosmetics concern from the 1920's. Other local landmarks include Ludwig Mies van der Rohe's IIT campus and the former site of Stateway Gardens, one of Chicago's recently demolished public housing projects.
NEW PROJECTS is directed by Marshall Brown and Stephanie Smith with support from the Davis Group and the Illinois Institute of Technology. For more information, visit NEW-PROJECTS.ORG.
