"Chicago is the birthplace of American architecture," states Rafael Viñoly, the much-lauded Uruguayan architect behind NEMA Chicago. Inspired by Daniel Burnham’s urban plan for the city, this residential project is driven by Chicago’s history. Its minimalism and simplicity pays homage to classic and modern architecture of Chicago’s numerous cultural institutions.
The 800 homes in the building come with access to a collection of resort-inspired amenities including an outdoor deck, private entertaining areas, wellness facilities, a co-working space and more. The modern interior design by David Rockwell’s Rockwell Group, was inspired by the lines of Chicago’s city grid.
