The New Spertus Institute: A Study in Light by Krueck & Sexton Architects

Published by Spertus Press, Chicago
Introduction by Howard A. Sulkin. Text by Cheryl Kent.

Chicago's Krueck & Sexton Architects--designers of showrooms for Christie's and Herman Miller, the Joseph Cornell Galleries at The Art Institute of Chicago and many other industrial and residential projects nationwide--is internationally recognized as one of the most innovative and accomplished design firms practicing today. Founded in 1979, the firm has produced a body of work noted for its thoughtful and provocative explorations of the possibilities of Modernism. This volume focuses on an expansion of the Spertus Institute of Jewish Studies, an 80-year-old Chicago institution that selected Krueck & Sexton to design a signature architectural statement about the nature of Jewish culture and learning. The result is a 150,000-square-foot unabashedly contemporary building on historic South Michigan Avenue, whose presence among traditional nineteenth-century masonry buildings both respects and challenges the notions of past and present. Light Study reveals the concepts and processes behind the design of this institution.
