NEW PROJECTS
NEW PROJECTS is an urbanism studio, research center, and exhibition space in Chicago. The 3400 square foot storefront is 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.

Location: 3621 South State St, served by the 35th Street stations of the CTA green line, red line and METRA.

NEW PROJECTS is directed by Marshall Brown and Stephanie Smith (Deputy Director and Chief Curator, Smart Museum) with support from the Davis Group, the Illinois Institute of Technology, and the University of Chicago Smart Museum of Art. For more information, visit NEW-PROJECTS.ORG.
