Universities are some of the best places for great architecture and the new addition to the University of Chicago campus by design architects Diller Scofidio + Renfro is no exception. This eight-story tower is meant to be a stack of neighborhoods with meeting and communal spaces for visiting scholars, researchers and dignitaries from around the world to meet and exchange ideas, lectures, workshops, etc.

Photographically, I especially love the east and west facades and the geometric patterns created by the staggering stacks. I also like how different it can look or what the eye is drawn to in color vs. black white.

I started shooting at the backside of the building given the time of day. Plus, it’s equally as amazing as the front.

And some nice landscaping by Site Design Group.

Moving along the west side of the building. More landscaping and details.

Just under the building looking up, I liked the angles of the stacks and the bit of connection with nature. Personally, preferring the black and white interpretation, but both offering their unique points of emphasis on the design.
