Retalliata Engineering Center at Illinois Institute of Technology
This transformation of an existing classroom building into the academic center for the Armour College of Engineering was made possible by a grant from the estate of former University President John T. Rettaliata. A master plan for the entire building was prepared with an initial construction phase including new prototypes for Interactive Teaching and Distinctive Education initiatives. New skylights in a new central atrium create areas for collaborative study. A new steel and glass canopy marks the entry to the building.
