University of Chicago - Reva and David Logan Center for the Arts

The  Reva  and  David  Logan  Center  for  the  Arts is a 184,000 GSF creative and performing arts center situated on the University of Chicago's Midway Plaisance.   Eric Eichler served as senior project manager, leading the project from concept design through completion.  The building design features an iconic tower and a podium with sawtooth roof featuring 260 photovoltaic solar panels.  The landmark facility brought a majority of the University's undergraduate Arts programs together under one roof.  The development footprint of the building and site covered four acres, resulting in a significant new campus landscape in addition to the new building.
