Plans unveiled for Roosevelt University tower

A 32-storey glass tower is to be built at the Roosevelt University in Chicago.

The new tower, which will be the second tallest campus building in the US, has been designed by prominent US architect and planning firm VOA Associates.

The building, which will be used for both academic and residential purposes, will have an undulating glass facade in various shades of blue
and green.

The design incorporates a zigzagging profile, inspired by Romanian architect Constantin Brancusi.

The tower will be built adjacent to the Auditorium Building, the university’s home since 1947, which was designed by Louis Sullivan.

When the new structure is completed in 2012, it will house administrative offices and classrooms, a dining hall and fitness centre,
a conference centre and science labs and residence suites.
